PreS-K--Silly sight words and a pair of colorful creatures teach the long "oo" sound in this early reader book. Two colorful, egg-shaped creatures meet each other in the park for a doodle. The possibilities grow when the Doodling Poodle joins in to doodle some noodles, and together the creatures and poodle come up with more and more ideas for doodles--and chances to use the long "oo" sound in progressively sillier sentences sure to make early readers laugh out loud. Illustrations are bright and cheerful, featuring the two colorful creatures and their beret-wearing poodle in a city park. In addition to making use of rhymes on most pages, text introduces various definitions of the word "noodle." Words are well spaced and in large print. VERDICT A strong addition to public and school early reader collections. The skillful use of sight words and multiple context definitions make this a good choice for easy reader collections everywhere.--Savannah Kitchens
