PreS-Gr 1—A child and her father catch a bus, arrive at a museum, and see displays of Egyptian artifacts, foxes, and dinosaurs. Then it's lunch time, and while the girl is eating her sandwich on a park bench, a bird takes a bite of it to feed to her babies. Upon reentering the museum, the bird follows them, resulting in several humourous escapades. As the series title indicates, the book is meant to be shared, with an adult reading the more challenging text on the left and a child completing the sentence with one easy word on the right. The colorful and appealing illustrations show the closeness of the girl and her dad as they delight in their outing together. Young readers will feel a sense of accomplishment by sounding out the words, enjoy listening to an experienced reader, and find satisfaction in reading with someone else.—Janene Corbin, Rosebank Elementary School, Nashville, TN
