Kindergarten-Grade 1-Two appealing easy-readers. In the first book, Jack (a rabbit) tries to help his sick friend Rick (a bear) feel better. Then, after all his efforts, Jack finds that he needs a nap and crawls into bed with his friend. Ink-and-watercolor drawings are expressive and full of sight clues. With friendship as its overall theme, this is a winning title for character-development units. In the second book, a boy keeps getting distracted by the things he sees on a walk through the park. Todd's mother is clearly in a hurry and scolds each time he runs off to pick up something else. Once they are on their bus, he hands her a box full of treasure that he has gathered for her and she is delighted. Cartoonlike, bright black ink and pastel paintings accompany the easy text. Both books include enrichment activities that readers can replicate with minimal help.

Reviewed with Paula Sullivan's Todd's Box.
PreS-Gr. 1. Very early readers, like these Level 1 books from the Green Light Readers series, have the challenge of turning a few words into a story that will pique children's interest. Both these offerings accomplish just that; the texts may be brief, but they will propel kids into reading. In Rick, Bunny Jack comes to play with Rick the bear, but Rick is in bed. Jack helps with a cup of tea and a bag of ice, and when it's time for a nap, they take one together. In box, Todd and his mother are taking a walk. Mom tells Todd to stop picking up things, but he doesn't listen. At the end of the story, he gives her a box of the treasures that he collected. The pictures add to the books' appeal, and there are several other useful features, including activities such as making a friendship medal. Although the questions that follow the stories take some of the fun away, these are still bright choices for beginners. Ilene Cooper
