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

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
