Booklist Review

PreS-Gr. 1. Round, pink pig Beth is sad; her favorite red boots don't fit anymore. Her barnyard friends offer her their boots--but rabbit's are too fuzzy, worm's are too skinny, cow's are too big, and so on. Everyone is disappointed until Beth's friends reappear with a present--new boots just for Beth. Then, newly shod, Beth joins the other animals at play. Clean-lined, artful watercolors reinforce the action in the simple text. The story is well suited for brand new readers, who will relate to the sadness of outgrowing favorite items. A basic but winning Green Light Reader. Gillian Engberg.

School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 2-Two selections for new readers. In the first, a pig has outgrown her favorite red cowgirl boots. Each of her friends offers her an alternative pair, but none is right for Beth. This silly story will amuse youngsters. Ernst's bright, movement-filled, pastel-colored illustrations fit perfectly with the quick and playful text. In the second book, a child accompanies her parents as they pack up fruits and vegetables grown on their farm and travel to sell them at an outdoor market. The simple, straightforward text is enhanced with lovely oil paintings depicting the people and market-day activities with sensitivity and warmth. Solid additions.-Lynda S.
