The Worry Monsters


By: Sally Rippin

Hey Jack series

Jack hates spelling and his teacher has given the class a list of words to learn for the up coming spelling test. Jack knows he has to practice them but he just doesn’t want to. Then other things happen and before he knows it the test is the next day. Now Jack is not feeling very well, his tummy feels all jumbly with worry.

Like all Jack stories, at the heart is something all kids deal with, in this case spelling tests and the feeling of worry. These books are great because they address feelings and situations not often addressed in young reader books in a manner that lets kids know it is okay to feel these things and there are ways to deal with them. These can be a good place to start dialogue with young readers. The stories are easy to read with large print and a few illustrations. Also in this case Jack’s dad has an interesting solution for learning the spelling words.

The Crazy Cousins

By: Sally Rippin

Hey Jack series bk 1

Jack just wants to be left alone. He absolutely doesn’t want to have to play with his noisy cousins. Too bad his Dad won’t let him stay in his room. When Jack does go out to play he discovers something that changes his whole attitude.

This is the first book in the Hey Jack series. Jack is a fun little boy who is a bit moody, but that’s fine because everyone gets a little moody sometimes. This series is a companion series to the Billie B Brown series, Jack and Billie are best friends. In style and format they are the same – large print with simple, easy to follow story lines that are fun to read. An ideal book to look at when looking for something to interest beginning readers.
