Reviews

It's unusual for a book this straightforward to accomplish several things, but this succeeds. Yuly offers a story that has action and tension, while at the same time--with the help of parents and teachers--extends the way kids think about words. A simple exercise would be to ask them other things Early Bird might do, thereby emphasizing verbs and prepositions. A fun way to learn. Booklist, starred review This Early Bird does indeed get the worm, and what she does (and doesn't) do with it creates some fun moments of suspense and humor in the final pages. Publishers Weekly With its snappy text, vivid pictures, and lively protagonist, this title would make for a fun read-aloud during story hour. School Library Journal My favorite book of the month for ages 1 3: Toni Yuly's Early Bird uses bright saturated colors to illustrate her whimsical tale. v it out. Nancy Perl
