Full-Text Reviews
School Library Journal (August 1, 2013)
K-Gr 1-The texts average between 20 to 35 words in these titles designed to help build particular skills such as identifying colors (Carousel Colors), counting (Duck Pond Fun), and sight words. For example, in Playground Friends, "Bakri is on the bridge"; "Britney is on the bars"; "Sara is on the swing." Each book includes a guided reading level, DRA level, and Lexile level on the back cover. The titles lack interesting or well-developed stories, but their brevity could help young students in independent reading practice. Colorful cartoon illustrations serve to expand on the texts. Strictly functional selections.-Lindsay Persohn, University of South Florida, Tampa (c) Copyright 2013. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
