With the expectation of kindergarteners reading increasingly difficult emergent reader texts based on the Common Core Standards, it is crucial that teachers have access to leveled books that their students can read (and want to read!!) With that thought in mind, I have created this book (and will be creating many more!!)
This book is written at an approximate level C. Many sight words are used to support early readers as they begin to read more difficult text.The complete text of the book is included below, so you can see if it will meet the needs of your students.
