REVIEW: School Library Journal
 “PreS-Gr 1–This collection of eight short stories, with titles such as “So Fast,” “Big Animals,” and “Hoppity Hop,” features controlled language with high frequency sight words and lots of repetition designed to help beginning readers reinforce their new reading skills. Bright and cheery full-bleed illustrations offer clear assistance with decoding the nouns and verbs in the simple text. VERDICT Although there’s not a lot of story in any one entry, the volume offers emergent readers an opportunity to practice their decoding skills and is a colorful alternative to other easy reader series.”
