Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2-These titles offer independent readers imaginative stories, an opportunity to build vocabulary, and memorable characters. Mildred, which is about overprotective parenting, has the thinnest plot, but the endearing illustrations encourage readers to keep turning the pages. Second Grade tells of a boy who sits next to the class hamster and the trouble that ensues when he decides to take it along on a field trip. First introduced in Big Max (HarperCollins, 1978), this title's star is a clever detective who dresses like Sherlock Holmes and travels via umbrella à la Mary Poppins. Here he takes on a case in the land of Ah-Ah Achoo. Fans of Marjorie Weinman Sharmat's "Nate the Great" series (Delacorte) will enjoy this whimsical mystery. Beginning readers will be motivated by these clever tales and pore over the imaginative illustrations.-Laurel L. Iakovakis, Douglas County Libraries, Castle Rock, CO

From Booklist

PreS-Gr. 2. As Mildred and Sam's eight baby mice grow bigger, Mildred worries about them, Sam helps them play outside, and the babies dream of soaring adventures. Finally the little ones are ready to start school. The old-fashioned gender roles, with the strong dad and fussy mom, certainly don't fit all families. But the warm, colorful, full-page pictures reinforce what the text spells out, showing a cozy, loving home that makes kids feel safe enough to dare to leave. The story, which is part of the I Can Read! series, is filled with details of the preschooler's daily life--learning to tie shoelaces, packing lunches, imaginative play--that will appeal to little ones who nervously ready themselves for their first day of school.
