4.0 étoiles sur 5first book my Kindergardener read on her very own25 novembre 2012
Par Veronika - Publié sur Amazon.com
I admit, this book is awfully boring. it repeats simple phrases over and over. However, this is exactly why I also recommend it! My 5 yr old started K this year and the curriculum is very demanding. She has had to memorize close to 50 "sight words" already and the kids are now being primed to read (it's only 5 months into the school year). My daughter had strong doubts about her ability to read, until I picked up this book at the local library. She read it cover to cover on her very own, out loud, and has since moved on to other books. This book consist of mostly the very "sight words" that have been drilled into her head for the past few months and I love it that this book is something beginning readers can read without much phonetics (since apparently, the curriculum here does not teach the use of phonetics in the beginning of Kindergarden for some reason). It does make for a terribly boring bedtime story though. Although it'll certainly put you to sleep.
5.0 étoiles sur 5Love Margaret Hillert, Her Readers are Great11 septembre 2010

Another good primer from Margaret Hillert.
"I Like Things" is a fine example. It's a story about a little boy and 'collections'. It starts out which him playing with buttons. He sorts them by color and size and shape and finally makes a necklace out of them for his mother. He then looks over a collection of stamps with his dad, and finally a collection of trading cards with his friend. The principle theme is how making collections is fun, and as such --with the sorting and all -- this makes a great book with dual usability.
THE TECHNICAL BITS::: 298 words This one is rated at the entering first grade Reading level: AR 1.0 The toughest words are: yellow, something, and friend.

1.0 étoiles sur 5I Don't Like "Things"26 décembre 2011

I Like Things (Beginning-To-Read)
It's too bad I can't give this book zero stars. "I Like Things" might be the worst book I've ever picked up.
While the book may be about 300 words long, there are only 64 unique words used. I don't think Hillert ever uses an actual descriptive word - she just repeats "things" over and over.
Here is some sample dialogue from pages 28-29, where the young boy is looking at his button, seashell and pine cone collections.
pg. 28: I like things. Big things. Little things.
pg 29: Red and yellow and blue things. What things do you like?
I only recommend this book if you're trying to bore a young child to tears.
