Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-K?A very simple story in rhyme, set at the beach. Not only can beginning readers feel successful at mastering the short, repetitive sentences, but they can also excel at counting the human feet and fish under the water. Colorful illustrations enhance the text. Libraries that never seem to have enough of the easiest primers will want to add this appealing title.?Blair Christolon, Prince William Library, Manassas, VA

From Booklist

Gr. 1^-2. From the My First I Can Read Book series comes a simple story that offers repetition, rhythm, and rhyme to speed beginners on their way into reading. Six fish are swimming in the shallows when six children's feet appear. One fish is trapped under a child's upside-down pail, until the child returns to retrieve the toy and unknowingly releases the fish. Schindler's pictures contribute color and visual clues to the action for those who need them. Adults determined to do so can make this into a counting book as well, but what the text and pictures really have to offer is a story simple enough for beginning readers to cut their teeth on and appealing enough for them to stick with. On that basis alone, it will be welcome in many libraries. Carolyn Phelan

My 6 yr old is in kindergarten and this book was a little bit of a challenge, but very readable because of repitition and rhyming.

All children love it! My three year old learned how to read five words within the first week from this book alone! I now take those cards off the sight words flashcards keyring and regularly quiz her. Parents, please let them quiz you too! They love it. Pretend that you do not know some of the words in the book or on the cards once they know them, such as "fish." Only do this once you've read it a couple of times and the child knows the word(s). Also, do not pretend with words they have mastered. Now that annoys my three old. I have seven of these I Can Read Books at Stage 1.

This is a cute book. This book is really easy to follow and very interactive.

Each page features a small sentence with a small command. For example how many feet?

In addition the phrases are repeated. This is great so the children can hear the words and remember it.

The illustrations are very simple making is really easy for the kids to follow along and complete the task being asked of of them.

Cute book, children joy hearing it read.
