Snappy the Crab is an emergent reader that children will love. Sight words and controlled vocabulary were used to create a delightful story that beginning readers will easily read and enjoy! Short sentences with predictable text make this story a great beginning reader. The illustrations were done by the author's 5 year old granddaughter, Issy. Students are immediately drawn to the pictures when they find out a child their age drew them. Your students will want to read this story again and again! This book is one of eleven books in The Issy Books series.
