“We do not zip like clouds. We do not zigzag like seeds. And we do not zoom like bugs,” Yeti. “No, but we zip, zigzag, and zoom like a unicorn and a yeti!” Unicorn. –Together
Unicorn and Yeti #6
by Heather Ayris Burnell
Unicorn and Yeti make every day adventurous. When they see how the seeds fly and the bugs zoom, they decide to go zip, zigzag, and zoom too. On another day, Unicorn decides it would be fun to copy everything Yeti says. At first, Yeti thinks it’s funny, but then he gets mad. When Yeti gets upset, Unicorn apologizes, saying, “I am sorry. I am being a copycorn. It is not fun for you.” In chapter three, Unicorn and Yeti dress up “fancy” and go to a tea party.
Unicorn and Yeti is a fun series designed for children who are learning to read. Together contains easy-to-read text. Each page has illustrations and contains no more than four sentences. When each character talks, their words appear in different colored quote boxes. Beginning readers should be able to read the text alone and will enjoy flipping through the story multiple times to look at all the colorful pictures.
Young readers will be drawn into the book because of the adorable cover art, but they will stay because they are entertained by Unicorn and Yeti’s funny stories. Readers will learn about how seeds move and are replanted, as well as how copying someone can be annoying. One of the best aspects of the story is that Unicorn and Yeti demonstrate positive communication skills and apologize when necessary. Even though the book is short, it packs in positive messages about friendship as it makes readers giggle. Readers who love Unicorn and Yeti will find even more sparkly friendship-themed adventures in Rebecca Elliott’s Unicorn Diaries.
