I thought this was a good book for students who may be hesitant to read because it is a simple read which is good for students who have trouble reading because they become encouraged to read after being able to finish a book.

This book is a book for students who are just starting to read. It does not have many pages or words with a lot of syllables. I would have this in my kindergarten class or maybe the beginning of first grade for students who are struggling with reading. You can use these small books for guided reading to see how well the students are reading.

Very simple book to read to Kindergarteners. The message students will learn is that friends sometimes like to do things and they also like to spend time by themselves.
Great for kindergarteners and beginning readers. Short and sweet. Will get students excited about school!
