2009 Award
Termite Tales
( by Kathy Caple, Candlewick $14.99 Score: )

Newest in the Brand New Readers series, this is an amusing collection of stories about an unlikely pair, an Ostrich and a Termite. When Ostrich writes with a pencil, it’s Termite who sharpens it by eating the wood until there is no pencil left. What’s an Ostrich to do? Get a pen. This is the wry humor in each of four little tales that live up to the promise of making reading a success with the very first try. These little stories are repetitive and once they get the sight words down(the illustrations help) they are ready to read the whole book! These come in a single hardcover edition or in a set of four thin books. Look at the others in this series if you have a child who is just beginning to learn how to read!
