Book Review: Brownie and Pearl Take a Dip

05 Mar

I have been hearing really good things about “Brownie and Pearl”, a new, early reader series by Cynthia Rylant.  Sure enough, all copies, of all eight book in the series, were checked out at our local library.  I put one on hold and finally picked it up last week.  I was expecting the smaller size of an early reader but found this larger, square book equally appealing. Brownie is a very cute brown-haired girl with pigtails and Pearl is her cat.  In “Take a Dip”  Brownie and Pearl decide to go cool off in the little blue pool on a hot, summer day.  What a great book for beginning readers!  The illustrations are bright and colorful, not too busy.  The words on the page are big and bold (great for pointing and tracking words) with about one to three sentences per page.  Brownie even looks a little bit like my Little Lucy!  I can’t wait for her to read them… in a few more years.
