School Library Journal

“Refreshing and attractive additions to any beginning reader collection. The upbeat stor[y] of a. . . boy selecting his first pet work independently of their value as phonics lessons, a welcome change from most basal texts. Appealing full-color photographs of children enliven and reinforce the texts and give the books a clean, contemporary look. A page of ‘Phonic Guidelines’ at the back lists and explains 10 rules of often puzzling English-language pronunciation such as diphthongs and consonant digraphs. Two stories that children will enjoy.”
