Brownie & Pearl See the Sights - Cynthia Rylant

Released October 2010

Reviewed by Bob Walch

Young beginning readers are invited to accompany Brownie and her cat, Pearl, as they are off to do some Christmas shopping. They’ll visit a hat shop, a shoe store and then a cute little place that sells cupcakes. After they devour some delicious cupcakes, the little girl and her pet are tired so they head home for some hot chocolate and a little nap.

This is a very simple story with vibrant, adorable illustrations. The picture book’s appeal is that the large type and manageable vocabulary make it an ideal book for youngsters who are just beginning to read by themselves. With a little assistance from mom or dad, the child should quickly be able to handle this story.
