Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The dynamic duo that first met in the beginning reader Iris and Walter are back in Iris and Walter: True Friends by Elissa Haden Guest, illus. by Christine Davenier. With Walter's help, Iris slowly befriends a horse called Rain, then works up to riding her; and Iris heads to her new school. The two are as engaging as ever.

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2-In the first two chapters of this easy-reader, Walter teaches Iris to win the trust of a horse so that she can fulfill her dream to ride Rain "over green meadows, down a path of pines, straight into the sparkling stream." Although Iris is brave enough to accomplish this feat, chapter three deals with her first-day jitters when starting a new school, and the support she receives from her family, classmate Walter, and their teacher. Next, she helps Walter communicate his wish to be called by his full name instead of Walt. This sequel to Iris and Walter (Harcourt, 2000) celebrates friendship, validates emotions, and exemplifies problem solving. While readers new to these characters aren't told that Iris recently moved to the country, that detail is not essential to understand these charming stories. Davenier's expert use of pen and ink on keacolor paper results in cartoon characters whose facial expressions and body language exude emotion. The vibrant colors flow with captivating hues and shadows, and several sweeping vistas are printed on double-page spreads. Treat beginning readers to this book about common childhood events and feelings.-Laura Scott, Baldwin Public Library, Birmingham, MI

We highly recommend this entire series. They are great for beginning readers. The chapters are short making the reader feel like they have really done well!

With the new State Standards, these books will be useful in teaching about characters and using themes. I recommend it to any teachers looking for more than one book with the same characters.

My Kindergartner loves all the Iris and Walter books (and so do I). They are sweet, peaceful, with lovely watercolor like illustration.
