Editorial Reviews

Gr. 1-2. Off for a run in the park, a young boy imagines he runs as fast as a rabbit, a bobcat, a horse, a cheetah, until he arrives home, where he sits down on the stoop with a thump, then goes in the house and flops down on his bed. The short, energetic text in the boy's voice is extended by Ruffins' bright, rhythmic illustrations, which show each wild animal running in its natural habitat, and, on the opposite page, the African American boy running with his dad in the city park. Beginning readers will enjoy the action, speed, and color in words and pictures in this entry in the Green Light Reader series. Hazel Rochman
