The New Puppy
Lynn Maslen Kertell (Author)
Sue Hendra (Illustrator)
A great read for young readers. These BOB Books leveled readers are a little different from any of the other Level readers we have used, in that, at the back of the book are pull-out flash cards for the key words in the story. This was a great fun story. Anna and Jack want a puppy; their parents explain it will be a lot of work. They get their puppy and soon the kids experience a young puppy with all of the excitement and trouble that comes with. But as they spend time with the puppy, both they and the dog become tired out. Wonderfully written and illustrated, this will be a great book to work through with your young readers and younger children will enjoy the story also.
About the Level Readers
The Leveled readers from Scholastic are a great way to introduce your child to reading. The levels are:
Pre1: ABC's & First Words
Level 1: Sight words, words to sound out and simple sentences.
Level 2: New vocabulary and longer sentences.
Level 3: Reading for inspiration and information.
Each book has a level rating, a grade level, a reading level, a lexile level and a word count on the back.
