The Midwest Book Review

"Mike likes to play. He likes to play at the beach, swim in the water, and fly kites in the yard. Mike is illustrated as a happy child experiencing the joys of a fun life. Young readers will savor scenes of digging in the sand, of walking in flippers, as well as playing in the water. Large print high frequency words repeated in a simple language pattern help the emerging reader to recognize words. Each scenic page displays one sentence, providing the reader with visual imagery as well as text. This is level one (purple) in a series of Read-it! Readers. The Read-it! Series was created to support both the acquisition of reading skills and to foster the love of books. Six different levels ranging from purple to orange teach young readers different skills ranging from basic topics and objects to a wide range of ideas and challenging language structures. Formatted as a small hand-held book, it is easily handled by young hands. Advisors Adria Klein, PhD, California State University, and Susan Kesselring, M.A., Literacy Educator, Rosemount-Apple Valley-Eagan School District endorse reading techniques highlighted in the series. Emergent Reader, Ages 4 to 7." - The Midwest Book Review

Susan Blackaby

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.
