Editorial Reviews

Kindergarten-Grade 1-In the first book, Dad has lost his hat, Mom has lost a pin, and Pat has lost a toy frog. They look all through the house, but cannot find the missing things anywhere. When the family dog starts digging in the yard, they discover his "secret spot" and all of their possessions. Cepeda's bright, chunky illustrations portray an African-American family's amusement and surprise when they solve the mystery. In Lost!, a red ant feels water on his head and climbs up a tall pole (a straw), only to discover that he is in a sink filled with dishes. From there, he crawls around a house until, at last, he makes his way home to his friends. The computer-generated art is brightly colored and somewhat reminiscent of the animation in the movie Antz. The short, simple sentences and large-type texts are suitable for beginning readers, though both of these stories are slight and predictable and the artwork lacks the visual clues that new readers need.Joyce Rice, Limestone Creek Elementary School, Jupiter, FL
