PreSchool-Grade 2. These book/cassette packages introduce phonics through simple rhyming stories. Barbara deRubertis, the series' author, has been an elementary school teacher and librarian. Each story builds on a single short vowel sound, giving beginning readers practice through the repetition of sounds and familiar words. Story lines are silly and inventive, and recall Dr. Seuss's The Cat in the Hat for the building of rhythm and rhyming words. The books' animal characters and full-color illustrations will hold youngsters' attention. The read-along cassette features lively narration, using more than one voice to dramatize each story. This helpful series for emerging readers will engage their attention and be fun at the same time.Marcia Brightman, Orange Elementary Schools, MA
