PreSchool-K-These books take readers into a classroom with Timothy, Nora, and Yoko; six other students; and their teacher, Mrs. Jenkins. Adding covers counting, sorting, graphs, adding and subtracting equations, money, etc. Read focuses on the alphabet (upper- and lowercase), letter and sound recognition, rhyming, context clues in sentence structure, simple story writing, etc. One quibble, though-when using a method of eliminating one picture that doesn't belong to a group based on a letter sound, Wells groups the picture in columns that go from top to bottom rather than in rows from left to right as she does in her example. This might present some initial confusion and does not reinforce the traditional left-to-right eye movement in reading. Both books include a section at the bottom of each spread, "The Next Step," which suggests activities for extending the concept. Koelsch's endearing color illustrations complete the packages. These titles will make great introductory and curriculum-support books for preschoolers soon to enter kindergarten.
