The Lazy Rooster by Amanda Stanford, Charlotte Moody, and Kitty Van Oosten.
This sweet book about a Rooster who is just too tired to start everyone's day uses familiar words and fun, lovable characters.
These storybooks completely separate the text from the illustrations which encourages beginning learners to focus on the simple words of the story before appreciating the pictures of the story’s adventures.
