The book is one of a series of leveled books which I wrote to incorporate the Fountas and Pinnell leveled vocabulary, Rebecca Sitton spelling words, and general core curriculum standards for grades K-6 in the United States. There are 20 books (10 fiction and 10 non-fiction) per level A-U (Kindergarten through 5th grade reading) for a total of 420 books. There are 8 books (combination of fiction and non-fiction) per level V-Y (6th grade reading) for a total of 32 books.
The books are available for purchase in a variety of collections or as a single story.
