Contributor Bio(s): Martha Weston was a colorblind illustrator and children’s author who has more than 60 books to her name. Of her work, Weston said, “the best part of writing and illustrating is creating a world of my own—generally a goofy one—and feeling like I am stepping into it." She passed away at the age of 56.

This text about two children and their dog who repeatedly climb up and sled down a snowy hill uses rhyme and repetition√°in a very limited vocabulary to engage the earliest reader. The cartoon-style art is√°congenial, and, despite the limitations of form, the silly story is amusing enough to hold the attention of a child busy sounding out ""BUMP. PLOP. They all stop.""

Reviewed by School Library Journal Reviews (SLJ Reviews 2002 July)
K-Gr 1-Words presents the concept of initial-sound substitution as Mouse makes new words by changing the first letter: "hat" becomes "cat," "hog" becomes "log," and so on. Jack and Jill uses rhymes and repetition to tell the story of a boy, a girl, and their dog's repeated trips up a snowy hill and sled rides down again. Lively, full-color drawings illustrate the action in both books. Large print, repetitive word use, and a predictable pattern make these titles suitable for beginning readers.-Lisa Smith, Lindenhurst Memorial Library, NY Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
