Booklist Review

Gr. K-1. Young ones will learn to make pizza from scratch in this colorful entry in the Viking Easy-to-Read series. The rhyming text follows three friends as they collect ingredients, mix and knead the dough, add the toppings, bake, and then clean the kitchen. Although a few lines don't scan well, the rhyme and rhythm work overall and will help propel young readers through the pages, with vocabulary that's just right. The vibrant illustrations, reminiscent of Marjorie Priceman's work, reinforce and extend the action introduced in the words, showing the kids having fun and doing well on their own, with an adult on hand to handle the knives and oven. A pizza recipe concludes. --Gillian Engberg


School Library Journal Review

K-Gr 1-These very basic readers contain simple stories, repetition and rhyme, and colorfully illustrated pages. Big, Big Wall is a retelling of "Humpty Dumpty." Though the mouse and bunny are too small to keep him from cracking, a perky pig comes to the rescue, and the three friends cushion the egg as he tumbles into a flower bed. Dewey and Aruego's art lends whimsical good cheer to this familiar tale with a new twist. The second book is not quite as successful. Jack, a cat, and Sam, a mouse, meet in the first vignette and pronounce their friendship in the second, but the final story wanders into Sam's feelings of being big, little, sad, and, finally, happy on the last page when he and Jack are together. Bowers's illustrations are bold and cheerful. Beginning readers will enjoy their success as they read these stories independently.-Alice Casey Smith, Sayreville Public Schools, Parlin, NJ (c) Copyright 2010.
