Early Reader Animal Adventure

In this "Grow and Read" level two early reader book, the characters from Nocturnals World meet each other. Bismark is a quirky and spunky sugar glider, Tobin is a hungry and frightened pangolin, and Dawn is a quiet and helpful fox. When Tobin sees a pomelo on the ground, he claims it for his only, only to be yelled at by Bismark, who is perched in the tree from which the fruit fell. Bismark accuses Tobin of stealing the fruit, which hurts Tobin's feelings, since he thought the fruit was just lying on the ground for anyone to take. Luckily, Dawn happens along with a solution, which bonds the group together, especially when they realize their commonalities. A short description of the different animals, as well as one of nocturnal animals, is at the end of the book.

Good Points
Beginning readers can go through many books, and it's good to find ones on a variety of topics. Young readers who enjoy animals will find the descriptions of the animals to be amusing, especially the pangolin's habit of releasing smelly gas when it is threatened. The additional descriptions at the end of the book might spark more research, particularly about the natural habitats of the animals depicted.

The full color illustrations are quirky and funny, and the ratio of text to illustration is similar to the page set up of I Can Read or Step Into Reading books. The story lines about sharing and understanding the background and motivation of others are timely and important, and the humor of Bismark and his antics will draw young readers into the story.
