Booklist Review

K-Gr. 1. Quiet, bookish Lucy has six noisy brothers, so she escapes the racket at home by going to the library. The librarian gives Lucy a book about a girl just like her who has six brothers, and when she takes the book home and reads it aloud, her rowdy brothers amazingly settle down to hear the whole story. When she returns the book to the library, she finds that the children's room is packed with unruly young patrons. Pulling out her book, Lucy calms the crowd with another impromptu story hour. The basic vocabulary and short, simple sentences with just the right amount of repetition are perfect for new readers, and the uncluttered, pastel-colored pictures reinforce the meaning in the words. Children who are just mastering reading alone and aloud will recognize Medearis' underlying message about the impact of a good story on both the reader and her audience. A short list of activities closes this solid entry in the Green Light Readers series. --Gillian Engberg Copyright 2004 Booklist


School Library Journal Review

Gr 1-2-At first glance, these beginning readers appear to be typical of the genre with pleasant stories, controlled vocabulary, lots of white space, and colorful illustrations. What makes them special are the extra features designed to enhance the reading experience: open-ended questions relating to the stories, activities with clear directions, photos of the authors and illustrators that personalize the books for young children, and tips for parents on raising readers. In Lucy's Quiet Book, a girl goes to the library when her six brothers get too noisy and, in Best Friends, two boys explore and play. Tom√°s Rivera is an inspiring biography of the Mexican-American author, while the other two titles are about ordinary childhood happenings. The pictures complement the stories; Rivera is illustrated with paintings that reflect the period while a more playful, cartoon style of art is used to convey the fun in the fiction. Solid additions for beginning reader collections.-Doris Losey, Tampa-Hillsborough County Public Library, Tampa, FL (c) Copyright 2010.
