Review: 3, 2, 1, Go!

The Basics

Title: 3, 2, 1, Go!
Author: Emily Arnold McCully
ISBN: 9780823432882
Copyright Date: 2015
Publisher: Holiday House
Reader Brand: I Like to Read
Level: N/A


Ann and Bess are playing school. Little Min wants to join in on the fun. When the big girls exclude her, Min develops a plan to meet them without crossing the line they have drawn.

A great example of a simple beginning reader that’s really well done. The text is fully supported by the illustrations, the story is clear for a young child to understand, and the vocabulary only has a few multiple syllable words. Bonus points for this book showing girls doing STEM activities instead of choosing to make the story about a little boy engineer.

Definitely recommended for most public libraries. Great for those looking to increase STEM offering featuring girls and for those looking for very early beginning readers (level 1).
