Larry and Rita


Brand New Readers: Larry and Rita. Jamie Michalak. Illustrated by Jill Newton. 2007. Candlewick Press. 48 pages.

Larry and Rita is one of many titles in Candlewick's Brand New Readers series. It contains four stories: Rita at the Fair, Rita Blows Bubbles, Larry and the Crab, and Larry and Rita Dance. The books are simple and predictable. But they're also enjoyable stories. I like the small twists at the end of each story.

From Larry and Rita Dance:

Larry dances.
Cha, cha, cha.
Rita dances.
Cha, cha, cha.
Larry and Rita dance together.
Cha, cha, cha...
Can you predict what might happen next?! I enjoyed these books. I liked both Larry and Rita.
