PreSchool-Grade 1 A limited vocabulary of around 50 words is used in both of these stories. Halloween Party shows costumed children at a party accompanied by a text that includes sentences such as, "There will be cake. M-m-m, good! " The brightly colored ink and watercolor illustrations are competent but not interesting enough to overcome the dull text. In Umbrella Parade , a group of young animals goes for a walk on a rainy day. The text stresses the color of the umbrellas and ends with the animals saying, "We can have an umbrella parade! Drip, drip, drip!" The illustrations are reminiscent of greeting cards for children. Neither book has a plot, and most children will be completely bored by them. Among others, Anne Rockwell demonstrated in Thump Thump Thump! (Dutton, 1981) that it is possible to use repetition of a controlled vocabulary without sacrificing interest or suspense.
