Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1-Two good choices for children who are just beginning to decode words and need to know that they can read a whole book. In Home, Matt, a squirrel, is new in the neighborhood and has no friends. When Pam (another squirrel) loses her hat, he catches it and returns it. Now, each of them has a new friend. The story is short and sweet, and good for the earliest readers. Each spread features one or two sentences against a white background on one side and a full-page illustration on the other. In Jack and Rick, a rabbit and a bear want to play together but are on opposite sides of a stream. Jack can't lift a tree limb to make a bridge so Rick throws him a rope so that they can pull the limb over. When Rick tries to cross the bridge, however, he falls in and his rabbit friend pulls him out. It's a simple plot about friends helping one another, with one sentence per page and a softly colored, uncluttered illustration above it. It is next to impossible to create an interesting plot using so few easy words. These titles succeed better than most.

From Booklist

Gr. K-1. Emergent readers get a quick lesson in cooperation from this encounter in the Green Light Reader series. "Jack and Rick want to play." But Jack--portrayed as a rabbit with a polka-dot kerchief in McPhail's much simplified but still expressive pictures--stands next to a log on one side of a stream, and Rick the bear, with a length of rope, is on the other. A solution is not long in coming, followed by a splashy mishap. The text, one line per page or spread, mixes simple statements, questions, and exclamations that work with the pictures, so that when Rick falls off the log, instead of just describing the action, the caption is a response: "No! Oh no!" Jack uses the rope to pull Rick out, and both are last seen happily jumping rope together. A tidy, well-paced tale that will help pave the way to Frog and Toad and similar easy-reader friendships. John Peters

Format: Hardcover
The pictures are simple. The words are simple. On the surface, the plot is, too. Still, McPhail includes an important lesson in team work, helping others and handling difficult situations.
On opposite sides of a stream, Jack the rabbit and Rick the bear want to play together. Jack has a log on his side of the stream, Rick a jump rope. Jack and Rick work together to overcome obstacles to get on the same side of the stream.
The story is nicely done in a simple first reader. It tells an interesting tale in words an early reader can handle. It's a great combination. It's even one that my 2 1/2 year-old enjoys having read to him. All in all, the book is well done.

They are great to help younger kids to read by helping them to connect letters and sounds. And acting out stories with them to make reading fun.
