Reviews - What do customers think about Tara and Tiree, Fearless Friends : A True Story?
Beautifully illustrated, outstanding story Jun 23, 2007
My son is four and not yet a reader, but he loves being read to--and in the first 24 hours of having this book we've probably read it at least a dozen times. A better choice than some other early reader books--with word choices that are neither too simple nor too repetitive. The story is told in such an engaging manner that it opens avenues for discussion--my son offers how he would help or serves up editorial comments ("That's not good...."). The illustrations are clean, warm and so evocative that my son has joined in offering voices to accompany the illustrations. He will certainly choose this book when he begins to read himself. A wholesome, believable and true story--quite a combination.
a interesting story for learning readers. Mar 10, 2004
For my son who is a learning reader, this was a fascinating story. This is another good one in the Pets to the Rescue series. It seems to be hard to find books to interest boys learning to read and this was another one that served as an enticement to get to sit down and read. Again the "true story" aspect was particularly interesting to him.
