Auerbach, Annie, Callie Asks for Help. Pgs. 32. Disney Hyperion, 2015. $3.99. EARLY READER
Callie and Sparky are extremely helpful. They bring back jackalopes, manage disputes, paint barns, and move big rocks. But, what happens when Callie and Sparky get stuck in a deep canyon and need help themselves? Will the townspeople come to the rescue?
The illustrations are colorful and befitting of the tv series. The text is slightly more challenging than one would expect with a Pre-1 reader, but early readers will get drawn into the story. The text and pictures complement each other well. Young readers will enjoy reading this with some help or having it read aloud to them. PreK, EL (K-3). ADVISABLE. Reviewer: Kira M, Youth Services Librarian, WHI Public Library.
