Publisher Description:
This Level 1 book is appropriate for children who are just beginning to read. Ms. Hill brings 28 fish to school today. What will she and her students do with all those fish? Find out. This unique Level 1 series accurately portrays real-life situations that help young children identify with and learn from while helping them improve their reading skills. Presented in classic DK style, young readers will enjoy photographically illustrated information in an entertaining package. For children who are just beginning to read and who have a limited vocabulary, these 32-page Level 1 books-about everything from tadpoles to puppies-use word repetition and simple sentences to convey meaning. Picture dictionary boxes with word labels "show" the meanings of words. These books contain between 400 and 450 words each, and they are 80 percent pictures and 20 percent text. The Dorling Kindersley Readers combine an enticing visual layout with high-interest, easy-to-read stories to captivate and delight young bookworms who are just getting started. Written by leading children's authors and compiled in consultation with literacy experts, these engaging books build reader confidence along with a lifelong appreciation for nonfiction, classic stories, and biographies. There is a DK Reader to interest every child at every level, from preschool to grade 4.

Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2001 Fall)
Though the texts are dull and information is limited, beginning readers will get a sense of what a day is like for four workers: Jack, a builder; Lisa, a dancer; Rob, a firefighter; and Jan, a teacher. Boxed, labeled pictures help with reading comprehension, and a clock is frequently shown, indicating the passage of time. Set against white backgrounds, the photos are obviously staged.
