A new pair of buddies for beginning readers July 20 2005
By Corinne H. Smith - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
What a great new duo! This four-chapter book introduces kids to Cork (a muskrat) and Fuzz (an opossum). As with any new friends who have just met, the two begin to learn things about each other -- what they like to eat, and whether or not they like to be in water. Once they've compared a few differences, it's time for fun. Should they play hide-and-seek or find-and-eat? How about pin-the-tail-on-the-turtle? And just what is Fuzz hiding under the pointed leaf? Before the book is over, they discover that they have at least one common interest. That's all their friendship needs to keep it going.

Lisa McCue's illustrations are wonderful and perfectly fit the playful mood of the storyline. Her depictions are reminiscent of the classics done by Garth Williams, as two-dimensional animal fur looks soft enough to touch. And author Dori Chaconas has thoughtfully chosen two main character critters that many people cannot tell apart. Therein lies the teachable moment.

Here's hoping for much success as this episode launches a new series. Cork and Fuzz deserve to share many future adventures together!

I am IN LOVE with Cork & Fuzz. This easy reader series is a favorite in our household. Cleverly written and endearingly illustrated, this pair is destined to take their place among other easy reader favorites. Look out Frog & Toad!!

Cork and Fuzz is a great book for beginning readers. It creates two memorable characters, and subtly teaches about appreciating friends for their differences. My daughter, Meredith, loved it!

Delightful books for new readers! Aug. 2 2006
By Andrea Beaty - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I was so excited to discover this delightful series for new readers. So often, books for kids who are starting to read on their own are dull as dishwater. Not CORK AND FUZZ!

Dori Chaconas brings gentle humor and sparkle to these books as she does her picture books (ON A WINTRY MORNING, WHEN COWS COME HOME FOR CHRISTMAS, ONE LITTLE MOUSE, and MOMMA?).

Beautiful. I will certainly be recommending CORK AND FUZZ to my nephew and other kids I know who are starting reading adventures of their own.

This book is a summer assignment for my son who is an incoming 1st grader. He may not be able to read the entire book by himself, but with my help, he understands what the story is all about. And this book is one of his favorite :)
