School Library Journal Review

K-Gr 2-Two easy-to-read stories with bright, engaging illustrations. In the first title, Ann doesn't think she is very good at athletics. During Sports Day, she is encouraged to try her best and ends up having a great time. In the second book, Kim has just moved to the big city and doesn't know anyone. When her dog runs away, she looks for him in her neighborhood and makes some new friends. Both offerings include repetitive phrases as well as short sentences so that even nonreaders can catch on quickly and recite some of the lines. Each title ends with plot-related questions, information about the author and illustrator, and a simple craft.-Kristina Aaronson, Henniker Community School, NH (c) Copyright 2010.
