The Mighty Silent E! - Kimberlee Gard and Sandie Sonke (Illus)

Summary: Little e is sure he could be a hero -- he even has the cape to prove it!  But at school, he is so quiet, he just doesn't stand out.  That is, until one day when Little e doesn't show up to class and a lot of words just won't work.  The whole class is in an uproar!  Without their silent friend, what are they going to do?  Will Little e finally get his chance to come to the rescue?

With adorable illustrations, The Mighty Silent e! teaches spelling and vowel sounds in a new, exciting way that is sure to engage even the most stubborn reader.

My Review Little e may not have much to say, but that doesn't mean he isn't important.  When Little e doesn't make it to school on time, his classmates have trouble spelling certain words until Little e swoops in to save the day.

The Mighty Silent e! slid into my mailbox when it was released last month. I wasn't expecting a package, but it was an oh-so-cute and rather pleasant surprise.  I loved that the story emphasized both spelling and self-worth in a memorable way with adorable illustrations to boot.  It would be a great tool to help emerging readers understand the importance of the silent e.  If you have young readers, I'd definitely recommend giving this one a look.

My Review: 4 Stars

For the Sensitive Reader: All clear.

But WAIT....

I have only recently become acquainted with Familius publications
but I adore their commitment to helping families be happy through literature.  
You can learn more about their mission or just scope out their books

The Might Silent e! is part of the Language is Fun! book series, 
which includes other titles like:

The Little i Who Lost His Dot 
(A Book About Capitalization)


and

The Day Punctuation Came to Town 
(A Book About Punctuation)


I haven't read them (yet) but since they are from the same author/illustrator duo I imagine they are just as educational, colorful, and kid-friendly as The Mighty Silent e!

Have you read them?
Let us know what you think!
