I wrote this book after noticing my students' frustration with our rather difficult reading textbooks. The familiar story, repeating text, limited vocabulary, and illustrations make this a good way to build confidence in emergent readers. This book includes a "take-home" book for students and a week's worth of whole class reading lessons. At the conclusion of the week directions are provided for acting out a play. I have used this book many times with my classes in first grade and pre-school. I'm sure it would work well in kindergarten, too. We had a lot of fun with this unit, and it gave everyone a chance to "shine."
