Kertell, Lynn Cupcake Surprise EARLY READER Scholastic, 2012. $3.99 Content: G
This level 1 early reader features a very short and sweet story
about two children making cupcakes for their dad. When accidents/roadblocks
happen they are called surprises and the two children experience plenty of
surprises. The illustrations are bright and very simple.
This reminds me of the very simple generic sets of teaching
materials that are used in classrooms to regulate exact vocabulary learning for
upcoming testing, and its probably great for just that. This book type is not
something I would add to my library collection. At least give me interesting
illustrations if I am going to be spending library funds on it.
