Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2?Wandering around the park, Sid and Sam enjoy a silly singing game until Sam has finally had enough of the girl's unending song. " 'So long, Sid!,' he says, 'See you soon!' " The simple text has lots of repetition and clever wordplay. Karas's pencil, watercolor, and crayon illustrations convey the whimsy and delight of the children's friendship. The actions, facial expressions, and outfits are hilarious. This book is perfect for neophyte readers and is a wonderful companion to Chris Raschka's Yo! Yes? (Orchard, 1993). So long, Sid and Sam; see you in the library.?Gale W. Sherman, Pocatello Public Library, ID

From Booklist

Ages 3^-5. Sam and Sid sing, but Sid will not stop. "Sid sang and sang and sang." Sid's song is so long that Sam says "so long." This very simple easy reader is part of the My First I Can Read Book series. Told with lots of repetition and illustrated with colorful cartoons that show Sid driving Sam crazy, the silly story will make preschoolers laugh and play with words. Hazel Rochman

Format: Paperback
This book is written with short sentences and easy-to-read vocabulary for the youngest of readers. Sid and Sam make children smile when they are able to read on their own like the "big kids." This cute book will surprise readers with its unexpected ending.

The book is cute, but my son got easily lost amidst all of the words starting with S. He'd keep losing his place, and mixing up all of the very similar S words. "Sid said" being repeated a million times really got him.

On the good side, the words in this book are actually pretty simple, so it makes a good first reader. On the bad side, almost every word in the book starts with S, which made my ears hurt after just a few pages. For me, I found it annoying...really, really annoying. Again though, my young son could actually suss out the words, so it gets points for that.

Format: Paperback
This book contains sentences like "Sing slower" "Sing softer" "sing louder". This is informal / incorrect grammar. Should be "Sing more slowly" "Sing more loudly".
I don't recommend it unless you supervise and say that these are common errors and tell the correct way.
Except that it is ok.
