Rating: **** The above titles are 2 of 12 in the published series My First Graphic Novel with 4 more books to be published in January 2010. Addressing the primary reader, the books are written at 1.2 - 1.9 reading levels. In each book the forward focuses on directions to the reader, “How to Read a Graphic Novel.” Numbers and arrow directions give the reader an opportunity to become familiar with the layout of a graphic novel. Reminders are given to read the word balloons for sound and action. In the back of the book an about the author and illustrator give very basic information. A glossary is included with word pronunciation tips. Discussion questions and writing prompts provide an extension opportunity to the story. The story in Lily’s Lucky Leotard centers on a young girl stiving to do her best in gymnastics and attributing her success to her leotard. In T-Ball Trouble Marco wants to play baseball but because he is young he is encouraged to join a t-ball team. It takes numerous attempts but finally Marco makes contact with the ball and scores a run. Although his team looses, the players are praised because they tried their best. The illustrations are done in bright colors and the text boxes each in a different background color on the page allow the readers eye to follow the story. Balloons use a white background where as sound action words are done in a thick bold font. This allows the beginning reader to sequentially follow the story with minimal difficulty. For primary students this series offers an opportunity to practice their reading without getting lost in detail and an introduction to graphic novels.
