A Story Book For Beginning Readers will engage, entertain, and encourage both new and struggling readers. Offering timeless lessons about friendship, kindness, home, and family, Connie Silver's fanciful tales include: how twin piglets Twiddle and Twaddle got their names; a little striped pony who realized he wasn't a horse after all; Peyton the alligator with a too-big mouth; the day it rained chocolate in candy-covered Fudgeville; the mystery of the bottomless pond; and much more. Silver's tales start simple and get progressively more challenging to reflect and enhance your child's budding reading skills, vocabulary, and comprehension. Parents and teachers will appreciate the helpful word-review list preceding each story. With popsicles that talk, cats with secrets, and children who want to be all grown up, this storybook serves as both read-aloud fun and an invaluable learning tool, and it's sure to become a favorite on your child's shelf.
