Fix It, Sam

Product Details

About the Author

Lori Ries was born in Syracuse, New York, the eldest of four children. She discovered a love for storytelling as a young child and wrote her first story when she was just ten years old. It was a short story called "Jo-Jo the Raccoon" based on a true story about a baby raccoon that Lori's grandfather found on the side of the road and brought home for his children to raise. Lori lives in Tigard, Oregon, with her husband and three children.


PreS-Gr 1-Petey thinks his older brother, Sam, can fix anything, especially the messes he makes. But when Sam can't fix the younger boy's sagging chair tent, it's Petey who is the solution-literally. The text is comprised of short and simple phrases, but it's really the illustrations that tell the story. They show Sam, complete with tool belt, as a helpful older brother clearly aware that his sibling is taking advantage of his fix-it reputation. Ram 's use of water-soluble crayon with watercolors creates colorful pictures that manage to be detailed, emotive, and childlike all at the same time. The artist captures the active nature of a toddler and the knowing looks of an older brother. Her addition of two stuffed animals that closely follow the action is a nice touch for alert readers. This story works as a read-aloud and as a beginning reader.-Catherine Callegari, Gay-Kimball Library, Troy, NH Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
