From School Library Journal
Kindergarten-Grade 1-Words presents the concept of initial-sound substitution as Mouse makes new words by changing the first letter: "hat" becomes "cat," "hog" becomes "log," and so on. Jack and Jill uses rhymes and repetition to tell the story of a boy, a girl, and their dog's repeated trips up a snowy hill and sled rides down again. Lively, full-color drawings illustrate the action in both books. Large print, repetitive word use, and a predictable pattern make these titles suitable for beginning readers.

Gr. 1-2. From the Step into Reading Early series, this "phonics reader" gives children practice with sounds by changing the first letters in a series of words. A hardworking mouse in overalls constructs, deconstructs, and reconstructs words. For instance: "Find the word FAN. Blow away the F. Move in a V. Honk! Now it is a VAN!" Net changes to pet, ten to hen, bug to hug, and so on. Joseph illustrates the simple text with color, action, and style, using large letters forming the words as physical elements that the good-natured mouse manipulates in the pictures. A playful choice for beginning readers working with initial consonants. Carolyn Phelan

These Step 1 series are recommended for preschool-K - the stories are in large type and the vocabulary is easy. The stories are also in a rhyming format which makes them easy and fun to read. The full color pictures also provide contextual clues as to the word being used in the text. These early readers have raised my daughter's confidence level in reading, and she is doing so well that I'm purchasing the Step Two books (Preschool-Grade 1). I use these books in conjunction with sight words to reinforce her recognition of common vocabulary.
Pros: Cute, nice pictures, large letters.
Cons: The story really makes no sense.
Overview: This is a cute book, but I don't like that the story (or lack of story) makes no sense and I feel the pictures confuse the reader as your reading it.
Jackson Family Recommendation: No, I read it once and just don't like the book.
