Children's Literature (CLCD) - Barbara L. Talcroft

"The “Read-it!” series of early readers intends to present lively stories with attractive illustrations. This title is labeled as being on the Yellow (or second-most complex) Level, but is actually quite simple. The fire chief parks his big red truck in the school lot where he proceeds to tell the pre-school/kindergarten students about the rig and about his job. Suddenly smoke billows from the school kitchen and Mr. Dill has a chance to show his stuff. All ends well when the burned cheese sandwiches give way to fish sticks for lunch. Young children will find this a familiar (except for the fire) school experience, heightened by a lavish use of bright red and the animated expressions on the faces. For the new edition, the publisher lists two American educators as consultants. These unassuming little books can provide a pleasant reading experience for kids and perhaps help some early readers on to independence. 2005 (orig. 2002), Picture Window, $18.60. Ages 3 to 7. Reviewer: Barbara L. Talcroft (Children's Literature)." - Children's Literature (CLCD)

Susan Blackaby started writing in Mrs. Nichols' third grade class at Green Gables. She didn't think of becoming a writer until she had tried a few other things, including goat milking and weaving. Over the past 20 years, Susan has written textbooks, workbooks, and readers by the dozen for kids in elementary school. In 2002, her first trade book, Rembrandt's Hat, was named one of the top ten picture books of the year by the Washington Post. Susan lives in Portland, Oregon, with two people, two labs, and the nicest kitty in the world.
