This is an emergent reader book by Sara Ipatenco. It encourages children to recognize the simple sight words such as “to,” "her” and “day.” The book also encourages children to recognize other simple words. The 10-page book shows pictures of animal moms with their babies, including text that tells students what each baby animal is called. The last page leaves space for students to draw a picture of themselves with their moms. It uses repeated text and encourages children to use the pictures to figure out unknown words. The simple text encourages phonics skills, too. Simply cut the pages apart and staple them together. I’ve included a black and white version that students can color themselves and a color version that you can print, laminate and use as a classroom book! Enjoy!!
