Format: Paperback
I love Margaret Hillert books. My kids find the retellings of classic tales interesting, and the fact that they can 'read' the story themselves, works to build their confidence.

This little book is written for beginning readers. It is at the Kindergarten Reading Level: AR 0.8. The book contains 60 vocabulary words; 296 words total.

The story follows Tom's adventures as various sorts of creatures mistake him for a meal. Tom is rescued from each situation and ultimately ends up with a king that treats him kindly; offering Tom an ornate chair and a mouse complete with saddle to carry him. Tom appreciates these things, but ultimately decides that he must return home where he is warmly welcomed by this parents.

The sentences are better than those of Dick and Jane, but the story of Tom Thumb is definitely not completely explained by the text, so unless your child is familiar with the story you should read or tell them the full version beforehand.

The artwork by Dennis Hockerman is nice and all-in-all this little book is not a bad purchase for a beginner reader if you can get it at a reasonable price.

Recommend for practice. No down side except that children soon move on and are ready for more exciting reading material.

I plan to order more from this seller so Christmas gifts will arrive on time. I have 16 grandchildren who love to read, in part due to the fact that Margaret Hillert's children books are among the best.

Wonderful easy-to-read version of the classic Tom Thumb. The illustrations add so much to the story and help the children step into the make believe life of tiny Tom.

For a book that is designed as a beginner reader this is good at presenting a limited vocabulary however, the text is so limited that it doesn't tell the story at all. There are very few nouns, so that none of the animals or objects that are the actual focus of the story appear in the text. The words Tom Thumb do not even appear in the text.

On the positive side the pictures are lovely.
