Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2-Annie, a prereader, loves to draw and has an incredibly patient, attentive big brother; their interactions are chronicled throughout four chapters in this book for fluent beginning readers. The first chapter takes place at a lake where the siblings look for living things for Annie to draw: a frog, a crayfish, a clam, and a dragonfly. Simon gently suggests that she make some changes to her work and provides some interesting facts about the creatures. In the second chapter, Annie is convinced that Simon is sick because he is sneezing and has a warm forehead. Her efforts to care for him require her brother's help, but he is finally able to rest when he reads a book to Annie. In the third chapter, Simon postpones looking at Annie's new pictures until he reads "three hundred and six" more pages of his book while reclining in a hammock. Annie impatiently waits and becomes distracted by the neighbor's cat, and wishes her dog, Hazel, had some feline attributes. She tries to convince Simon that she has taught Hazel to purr. In the concluding chapter, Simon and Annie gather horse chestnuts and later must track them down when a squirrel buries them. Readers will enjoy the clever, humorous ending for each chapter, and adults may appreciate opportunities to extend the tales with informational texts about aquatic and domestic animals. Expressive, distinctive watercolor paintings depict the love and activities these siblings share in a quaint frame house in the country.-Laura Scott, Farmington Community Library, MIα(c) Copyright 2013.

From Booklist

The second entry in the Annie and Simon series features four little stories. In the first, Annie and her teenage brother look for living things down by the river. In the second, Annie nurses Simon after he sneezes. The third episode features the family dog, while the fourth concerns a wagonload of horse chestnuts and a neighborhood squirrel. But in all these amusing tales, the topics are secondary to the affectionate sibling relationship portrayed. Bright, lively watercolor paintings help bring these likable characters to life. Though designed for beginning readers, this appealing book would also make a good read-aloud choice for younger siblings. Grades K-2. --Carolyn Phelan

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

By Sandy on June 13, 2015
Format: Hardcover
Excellent book.Contains four stories that move nice and slowly. I love the conversation--so real-to-life!

Illustrations help the story a lot, although in some places they are almost like scribbles and not clearly defined.

Overall, great! Not quite a beginning reader; a bit higher than a picture book, but not quite a chapter book. Easy for someone who is slowly starting to read.
