Yoko Learns to Read - Rosemary Wells



Released February 21, 2012

Rosemary Wells
Disney Books

Book review by Bob Walch

Yoko and her mother keep reading the same three books from Japan until the little kitten realizes that her teacher will not give her credit or “leaves” for her reading tree at school it she just rereads the same stories over and over again.

It is then that Yoko discovers that her mother doesn’t read English. When the pair check out some books from the library, it is little Yoko who begins to decipher the text and read the story.  Now that she is beginning to read by herself, the cute kitten offers to help her mother learn their new language.

This is the ideal transition book for a child who is on the verge of beginning to read. Along with Yoko, the youngster can start to master the text and figure out the key words.
