PreS-Gr 1–A young child is on a quest to be helpful. On the first page, the child finds a canteen, then fills it with water and heads out for a walk. Along the way, many folks and critters benefit from the water that is shared from the canteen. The sweet community presents many ways for the main character to help. Diverse characters of all ages grace the pages of this story. The welcoming and ever-smiling child is clearly pleased with their role in the neighborhood. In the final scene, the child and a sibling have made lemonade using water from the canteen and offer it free to everyone. Each page has only one short sentence.
VERDICT Bound to be a success for beginning readers, this early reader is full of the repetition needed for introducing basic sight words. A great choice for libraries needing basic introductory early readers.
