The three full color comics in Volume 7 are phonics based. They contain simple short vowel words, short vowel words with double final 'l' or 's,' or initial and final consonant blends. This gives the beginning reader an opportunity to read slightly more challenging words while still having the support of the comic illustrations.

The characters act out their stories in a gentle and humorous way. Whether Jill is pouring her water bottle on her dog's head to cool him off, or Ted is falling in a fountain, the stories engage the reader. I hope your beginning reader will enjoy them as much as I enjoyed creating them.

I understand people think it's borring, but it is intended for small children learning how to read. If you are just learning how to read small rhyming words and pictures are helpful.

My sister loves this book and It's the only book she can read besides her reading book at school.

THE GOOD: Colorful, relevant, well-drawn illustrations. These, the use of simple storylines, and the repetition of one-syllable words make the book easy for tiny tots to follow and builds vocabulary. Commendable use of multicultural characters and of images of people caring for pets. THE NOT-SO-GOOD: My unrooted 16G Nook Tablet wouldn't advance past p7 or past p8 until I used "Go to page#" to force it. Plus, p8 and p9 are identical. This app needs a quality check. THE BAD: Unfortunately, this well-meaning author misses an important point - young, impressionable readers can be inspired by media to do unwise, even dangerous things. In this case, copycatters could be inspired to feed their dogs jam, and thus, inadvertently sicken their pets. THE UGLY: Worse, the author is either unaware or overlooked the fact that kidnappers and child molestors oftentimes use pets as lures. Otherwise, why would she have a little girl interact with a strange man in a park-like setting and sit on his blanket to stroke his pet? Or have the stranger and his pet pile into a van and leave the rug behind with the girl, when a wily pervert might use just such a ploy to set a trap by driving a short distance away, then return "to retrieve the forgotten rug" and snatch the girl, who - now conditioned to trust the man and bonded with the ram in the van - would be a tragically easy mark! Think these observations are melodramatic? Anyone trained in child and pet safety or who watched enough "after school specials" should have similar concerns about making such interactions seem normal in a children's book.

Just because they can read something, doesn't mean they should. The grammar and punctuation are lacking. Little readers should begin with stories written correctly. Also, if they're learning, there should be a couple challenge words included, not just the words they already know. There's no reason to pass over more colorful words that may bring more life to these stories. I applaud the author for taking the time to make something for early readers and offering it to them at no cost. It shows she has a good heart. Gloria, I hope you keep writing for the kids and use the constructive criticisms while ignoring the others.

This is a short comic strip type book. BUT it entertained my 3yr old son, which is what mattered the most, is what he thought. Since it made him laugh, it received four stars.

I babysit so I decided to get a few children's books for any "we're bored" times. So far, four kids have read these comics and the first thing I hear is either "what?" or "that wasn't funny". The four kids were from 6-10, and they didn't like this too well. One of the kids even said "I don't like how they write," meaning that they didn't like the clauses and broken sentences. Even though kids are kids, by the time they start going to school, they're learning how to read and write. There should be more children's books that aren't so choppy and have a good storyline to it.
