easy reading

THE BIG SOMETHING by Patricia Reilly Giff with illustrations by Diane Palmisciano (Scholastic, July 2012) celebrates the talented author entering into the easy reader market. Fiercely is a friendly large dog whose escapades draw his owner Jilli and her friend Jim into all manner of adventures. Simple sentences that are not simplistic, and illustrations that surround the text make this a great book for kids to read on their own. Chapters make the book seem more "grown up" as well. <191>

Fly Guy is back again in RIDE, FLY GUY, RIDE! by Tedd Arnold (Scholastic 2012). This time Fly Guy accompanies Buzz (his human owner) on a car trip. Before long, Fly Guy has flown out the window and into a non-stop series of trips aboard a truck, a plane, and other conveyances. <192>


  1. I love Fly Guy and the author, Tedd Arnold. Kids will read this for the pure enjoyment!

  2. My students love the Fly Guy books and will pick them up to read just for enjoyment as well.

  3. I LOVE the Fly Guy series! They never seem to stay on the shelves of our library:)
