Read full description of the books:
In this story of a young child traveling the familiar streets of her home town, she shows her mother and people around her her growing abilities to read. Each time the family passes by a street sign, restaurant, or adventuring inside her home the little girl expands her vocabulary bank by spelling out every word and using context clues to understand meanings of new words.
Not only was the artwork light-hearted and expository, but the book also held several interesting qualities perfect for keeping the attention of a beginning reader:
-The illustrations were had a warm color scheme, but pared with a mixed media of water colors and pencil, they were both welcoming and soothing to the eye. the use of the warm colors pulled you through each page in ease, accentuating the words that were sleek and bold.
-Transitions between the pages were done by the common and clever use of rhyme. However, there was only one line of the stanza on each page, in order for the reader to recall the other words the she could read. The text gained overall excitement and the discovery of new words. Towards the end she explains how she has learned to read: "my dad reads to me every night... He shows me to read left to right." The nostalgia the comes with the ending makes you feel like a kid again.
-The story had another element that is always a great way to keep the attention of the youth and that was the interactive part of the book. On page 16 the reader was to "look at the picture and find an object that begins with the letters " with interchangeable letters which made another activity for parents. After the reader is done finding the Waldos there were to find, the story comes to a warm and satisfying end.
Susan Hood has definitely made a this a classic for young readers; Look! I Can Read! was full of nostalgia and I was glad to pick it up again.
