Review by School Library Journal Reviews

PreS-K—Join Aaron the Alligator in this whimsical tale by Eastman, which has been adapted into a Step 1 easy reader. Aaron is a playful alligator who greatly enjoys adventures with his friends. Whether he is playing hide-and-seek, throwing around a football, or picking apples, Aaron finds a way to place his own humorous and creative spin on these friendly games. As in his other books, Eastman has created simple yet adorably expressive characters who resonate well with children. He adeptly uses white space and pictures drawn in a childlike style to allow emerging readers to decode words and directions. Also, questions to readers make this a solid option for a read-aloud, particularly during the autumn months. VERDICT A fine addition to a school or public library.—Maria Alegre, The Dalton School, New York City [Page 106].

It’s autumn in this Step 1 Step into Reading early reader by P. D. Eastman, author of Go, Dog. Go! and Are You My Mother? As Aaron the Alligator’s thoughts turn to apples, pumpkins, football, and . . . ghosts, his usual mishaps occur while playing outdoors with his friends. Young readers will giggle along as they tackle the simple words and sentences all on their own. Aaron the Alligator is also a star of The Cat in the Hat Beginner Book Dictionary and a long out-of-print series called Everything Happens to Aaron, the basis for this book. Look for more of Aaron’s Step into Reading escapades: Aaron Is a Good Sport, Aaron Has a Lazy Day, and Aaron Is Cool.   Step 1 Readers feature big type and easy words for children who know the alphabet and are eager to begin reading. Rhyme and rhythmic text paired with picture clues help children decode the story.
