Review
(The following is a combined review for Hot Pot: The Sound of Short O.; On the Boat: The Sound of Long O.; Ten Pets: The Sound of Short E.; Fun!: The Sound of Short U.; Little Bit: The Sound of Short I.; Cats: The Sound of Short A.; Play Day: The Sound of Long A.; Cute!: The Sound of Long U.; Smiles: The Sound of Long I.; What a Week: The Sound of Long E.; and ) PreS-Gr 1 — Large, bold black type makes these books easy on beginner readers' eyes. The visuals are strong: brightly hued page borders, text set in stark relief on white against vivid background colors, and crisply reproduced, child-friendly photos depicting adorable animals and a cast of delightful multicultural kids engaged in familiar activities. Except in Cute! and Smiles , the text generally serves as captions for the images rather than as stories per se. Children won't mind, though. They'll meet with reading success here, as the simple, often rhyming sentences so closely correspond to the referent photos. Targeted vowel sounds are repeated often. Each title concludes with a list of words containing the specific sound and an identical "Note to Parents and Educators." VERDICT A fine introductory series for new readers. --Carol Goldman (Reviewed November 1, 2015) (School Library Journal, vol 61, issue 11, p51)
