Format: Paperback Beginning Reader

Rating: 1-5 (5 is an excellent or a Starred review) 4

What did you like about the book? This is another in the Ready-to-Read Adventures of Otto, a little robot and his friends. It is a Pre-level One so it is totally non-threatening for the earliest of readers with very few simple words that are repeated. The type is large and there are few words on a page, generally only on one side of the page with bright cheerful illustrations. In this one Otto and his friends ride Peanut the elephant until he is tired and the load too heavy. Otto builds a cart for Peanut to ride in. Very thoughtful!

Anything you didn’t like about it? Not a thing.

To whom would you recommend this book? An excellent choice for children in the very first stages of reading.

Who should buy this book? Public libraries and lowest elementary school libraries

Where would you shelve it? Beginning Readers

Should we (librarians) put this on the top of our “to read” piles? No.
