"WATSON: SCHOOL," by Craig Farmer, Tate Publishing, $9.95 (ages 3-5)
Watson understands the importance of school. He will learn a lot when he listens carefully to the teacher or asks questions politely. He keeps himself healthy, plays well with friends and does his homework. “Watson is a good student.” An admonishment follows, “You can be one, too!”
Even though the story of this spunky little white terrier deviates from school activities, as suggested by the title, the text comes across more as a general litany of “good behaviors” than interesting school adventures. While there are only a few sentences on each page, the text is more appropriate for those who are more advanced than beginning readers as sentences are longer and contain complex syntax. “Watson: School” is a "read aloud" book so that the simple sketches of Watson and his little canine friends at play might be enjoyed.
