Recommended to Margaret by: Edelweiss
We love PD Eastman and while Aaron is a new character to us, his lazy day story was just right. My daughter is a budding reader and while she doesn't have all 75 phonograms down quite yet, she has many and this book was just the right amount of challenge for her. I'm delighted with the illustrations and the wit of the story as well as the progression of phonics and repetition of harder words to be just right for reading with out frustration.

I read a digital arc.

An excellent choice for emerging readers. The cartoon-style illustrations give clues that help new readers decode words. Short sentences and controlled vocabulary help build word recognition, as well as the reader's confidence. Silly antics are sure to please.

An early reader adapted from a 1964 Eastman title that follows an alligator through a summer day. The words and text match closely, but the story is not cohesive. This will serve as solid decoding practice. This is an optional purchase for beginning reader collections.

Emerson and Theodore
Read with Theodore. A cute one that has somehow escaped us until now. Classic PD Eastman drawings that I love.
