Booklist Review

PreS.^-K. These books offer different, but complementary, views of the kindergarten experience. The first deals with a child's anxieties before starting school; the second celebrates the experience of a happy kindergarten class. In Countdown, the narrator is so worried that she can't yet tie her shoes and so unnerved by the bogus kindergarten rules she has heard from a first-grader that she suffers mightily during the 10 days before school starts. Tying lessons from her father, a spaghetti dinner--nothing seems to help until she goes to school and discovers that most of the other kindergartners can't tie their laces either. The sly humor in both the first-person narrative and the speech-balloon comments is amplified in the expressive, ink-and-watercolor illustrations by New Yorker cartoonist Bliss. The deadpan and (occasionally) over-the-top wit makes this a terrific choice for reading aloud. And even if young children won't get the reference to Phoebe Caulfield for another dozen years, it won't diminish their empathy for the child's anxiety, their pleasure in her relief, or their enjoyment of this funny picture book. As bright and cheerful as a new box of crayons, Rogers' simple offering follows a kindergarten class through 26 days of the year: A day, B day, and so on, down the alphabet. In this multiracial class, led by one of the few black, male teachers in picture books, the children participate in alphabetically linked activities from acorn gathering to a zoo trip. The same children reappear in the appealing paintings, which illustrate the sometimes quiet, sometimes exuberant activities of this happy classroom. Parents and kindergarten teachers will find this a well-designed alphabet book that lists things to look for on each page: "railroad tracks / rugs / ruler." Preschoolers will be intrigued to see what kindergartners actually do all day. --Carolyn Phelan


School Library Journal Review

PreS-K-One more addition to the plethora of alphabet books available. Featuring a multiethnic kindergarten class with a black male teacher, the book presents artwork and then gives a set of words (all beginning with the same letter) for children to find. Some are simple, while others, such as "ant" and "snail," are more difficult. When challenging words are given, e.g., "quarrel" and "zebu," readers may not have any idea what they are looking for. Both upper- and lowercase letters are displayed and the words include diphthongs, long and short vowels, consonant blends, soft and hard sounds of consonants, and a silent "k." The illustrations are basic; the writing is elementary. In short, there is nothing about this book that will take it to the head of the class.-Anne Knickerbocker, formerly at Cedar Brook Elementary School, Houston, TX (c) Copyright 2010.
