Rating: 1-5: (5 is an excellent or a Starred review) 4
Genre: Easy Reader
What did you like about the book? This Step Into Reading offering is a good choice for readers who are just starting out. It is a “Step One” which means that it is geared to preschoolers and Kindergarteners to help establish a foundation for reading. Each page has super short rhyming phrases of six words or less. This particular story should please children who love trucks. Each page features two kids, a girl and boy, who encounter all kinds of trucks starting with, “Red truck. Green truck. Great big wheels truck.” The children and trucks are appealing, and the story offers an enjoyable introduction to learning to read.
Anything you didn’t like about it? No.
To whom would you recommend this book? Recommend to beginning readers.
Who should buy this book? Preschool and elementary school classrooms and libraries.
Where would you shelve it? Shelve with Easy Readers.
Should we (librarians/readers) put this on the top of our “to read” piles? No.
