9780823424276: Sam and the Big Kids (I Like to ReadŽ)

Poor Sam! He wants to play with the big kids. "You are too small," they tell him. "Go home." They hide from Sam, then they won't let him play in their fort. But when the big kids need help, who saves the day? Sam, of course! 

New readers will relate to being excluded by older kids, and they'll cheer for Sam when he shows that he can help, even though he's not big. Watercolor illustrations with pen-and-ink highlight the subtle emotions in this charming book.

About the Author:

Emily Arnold McCully received the Caldecott Medal for Mirette on the High Wire. The illustrator of more than 40 books for young readers, she has a lifelong interest in history and feminist issues. She divides her time between Chatham, New York, and New York City.

From School Library Journal:

PreS-Gr 2-Barner's amusing artwork done in paper collage, gouache, pastel, and pencil radiates off the pages as a playful pup shares the wonders of his garden and all of the living things that reside in it. The clear vocabulary and engaging drawings provide the earliest readers with a delightful story. Barner's use of perspective is precise, and earthy tones warm each page. Sam will strike home with little brothers and sisters everywhere who always get left out when the "big kids" are playing. Sam's big sister and her friend are having a tea party, and he wants to play, too. His sister tells him to go away, but Sam keeps trying to join in the fun. To escape him, the girls hide in a cave, build a fort, and then finally row a boat to an island. When it drifts away, it is Sam who notices that they are stranded and gets help. Full spreads of expressive bears fill up the space nicely as the lucid text balances well with warm hues in the pen-and-ink drawings. Simple sentences, repetition, and a large font assure success for children just learning to read. This leveled series supports core standards, helping beginning readers understand characters, setting, and plot while building reading fluency. Superb choices for the very earliest readers.-Melissa Smith, Royal Oak Public Library, MIα(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
