Summary of Book: This is a book that is only a few pages, but shows Dick, Jane, and Sally finding toys, and looking for colorful items on the front steps of their home. It is even structured to build in mild forms of rhyming among the pages.

Personal Reaction to Book: I like the fact that the book deals with number sequencing, introduces colors, focuses on sharing, rhyming, and it introduces no less than 18 basic pre-k and kindergarten level sight words. Additionally, the amazingly simple yet captivating illustrations on EVERY page are riveting to kids of this age. Lastly, as with most Dick and Jane books authored by Gray, they are heavily repetitive, which the children are drawn to. They want to listen to a book they are familiar with, in my experience.

Extension Ideas: I would take a blanket outside and read this book to the kids, since most Dick and Jane books, this one included, use outdoor space and invoke the idea of playing outside in warmth and sunshine. I would pick a day where the temperature was moderate, and I could release them for some free play time after we read it a couple of times and discussed it. ( )
