Summary:

Sue McDonald is trying to read her book. Unfortunately for her the vowels decide to jump out of the book and run away. Sue follows them, catches them and enjoys some exciting adventures along the way.

Educational Themes:

In addition to learning and practicing vowels and vowel sounds, the rhyming gives readers a chance to build their sight words and also have fun creating new words. Explore what words look like when they're missing a letter (or two).

Reading Level:

Recommended Age To Read By Yourself:
6 to 8
Recommended Age To Read Together:
3 to 6
Age of child:
Read with and by a 5-year-old girl.
Purchase Recommendation:
Borrow. This is a fun book - and it is a great for the public or preschool library - but your kids will outgrow it. I would by this for a Pre-K or Kindergarten teacher.
Little Kid Reaction

I picked this book because it looked like it would be fun to read. It was a little young for my daughter since she can already read but it was a fun way to review the vowels. She liked how Sue chased after the letters and found them such interesting places.

Big Kid Reaction

I enjoyed the funny way the letters were drawn and the cute way the vowels are introduced without it seeming like a learning book. I thought she would enjoy it more but do believe she was just too old and would have enjoyed it more if she didn’t already know how to read.

Pros:

Clever illustrations, a familiar tune, and a little adventure make this a fun book for learning or reviewing vowels.

Cons:

None.
