Reviews
Little Elf is not helping –Sophia
I love the problem and solution and the conversation that comes from this book because everyone isn't always good at things. I love the opportunity for a writing extension. This is a book that the kids can understand. (Posted on 12/29/2011)
A fun Christmas Season story –mary
This is a great story to pull out in December for guided reading groups or for Reading Recovery students. The children will love it because it meets them where their heads and hearts are during December. This well-written book provides lots of opportunities for reading "work" while offering supportive illustrations and dialogue. (Posted on 12/20/2011)
Help For Santa –Beth
Little Elf really wants to help, but things keep getting broken! Santa finds a job that is just right for Little Elf...a toy tester! Students will love this installment of Little Elf and may wish to have his job! (Posted on 12/20/2011)
Great book to use for Fluency –Tanya
I have really enjoyed using Little Elf and Pioneer Valley books. In the book, Help for Santa, a boy I work with read words, but needs work with fluency. This book has helped him be motivated to read quickly and he LOVES the mischief that Little Elf gets into. Thank you! (Posted on 12/20/2011)
Help for Santa is well-written and highly motivating for children to read. –Mary P
Help for Santa has all the elements of a great story for children. It has a plot all children can enjoy. First there is an elf who has a hard time staying on task with all those great toys surrounding him. There is a sympathetic Santa who, instead of making Little Elf feel bad, gives him a job he will really love. The book is well-written, using lots of dialogue, making use of many high frequency words children will be able to read and challenging words such as "workshop" and "broken" they'll learn quickly because of the great supporting illustrations. The font is clear and the words and sentences are well-spaced. Little Elf is a character all children will love and whose behavior they will understand completely in the story Help for Santa.
