Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1. Karlin tells a slight story in which the same few words are used in several different ways. Two jaunty kittens explore a field and discover a can, a saw, a bee, a sea, a seasaw, etc. They then take great pleasure in playing with those words?for example, one says, "I see, you saw." "No. I see, you saw. I saw the seasaw first!" None of the dialogue is attributed and the tongue-twisting sentences make little sense even when they are read correctly. The simple watercolor cartoon art is appealing, but not distinguished. This selection is more apt to confuse than engage emergent readers.?Suzanne Hawley, Laurel Oak Elementary School, Naples, FL

From Kirkus Reviews

Karlin (The Fat Cat Sat on the Mat, 1996, etc.) echoes Dick, Jane, and Sally--``I see the can. I can kick the can''--but the resemblance is fleeting, for the wordplay in this I-Can-Read entry is clever and bright. Young readers will be amused at the flurry of homonyms--``I can see a fly fly'' among them. There are excursions into past and present, and pokes at pronouns and the and a. Anchoring the book, which is narrated by two kittens, is the word ``seesaw.'' Karlin breaks it up, twists it around, and generally makes merry with the word's many possibilities. ``Look, a saw,'' says one kitten. ``I can see the saw,'' replies the other. ``I can saw the seesaw.'' But a frog gets the last lick: ``And I saw you saw the seesaw''--a grammatically slick tongue-twister. Simple watercolor illustrations crisply depict the meaning of the words, cutting through the ambiguity, and leaving readers with nothing but the purest pleasure.

Format: Paperback
Short, concise sentences. Use of present and past tense. Homor used through homonyms.* The ending left me thinking there should be one last page or sentence to tie it together. *It is coming down. Quack! Duck! Quack, Quack. "Oh, it is a duck." "I see the sea." Very good book with color illustrations. I would recommend this one to K through the 1st grade, as well as the teachers and parents.

Wonderful for beginning readers. Lots of repetition in the book so they words become sight words to the reader. Helps build confidence and learn common words through repetition.

Really nice book, though you might have a punster on your hands if you overdo it. Also promotes antisocial see-saw behavior.
