A nice story for budding readers about a little boy who is afraid his self-made robot costume will look silly compared to all the hired Harry Potter and Superman costumes of the other kids. But to his surprise, they like it, and he learns how to overcome nerves and disappointments to have fun with the others.
A great story for my 6 and 9 year olds, they could relate to both Jack and his best friend Billie.

Adorbs. Good choice for k-1 students ready for chapter books. #bookaday
These are classic easy reader books with 3 chapters of large simple text in a chapter book sized format.

(Think Henry and Mudge Under the Yellow Moon level but with black and white images and larger text in a skinny trade paperback size - looks like a chapter book, reads like a "reader")

I know a lot of early readers in my library who are going to love this series.
