PreS-Gr 2–Emerging readers are introduced to new vocabulary and learn how to be a good citizen. Each title begins with a photo glossary and a list of high-frequency words. Double-page photos are accompanied by a single sentence, which features one of the words from the glossary and an arrow pointing to its depiction on the page. For example, I Can Help includes a photo of a white girl with blonde hair pushing a book cart in a library. The text states, “I can help with the books,” and the word books appears again with an arrow directed to the books in the photo. Activities that involve finding a reading partner, drawing a picture, or brainstorming with the class are included. This series features BIPOC children and adults who are engaged in familiar activities and settings. VERDICT Captivating photos, repetitive language, and class activities make this a good introductory series. The focus on diversity and kindness kicks it up a notch.
