As far as leveled early readers go, this is engaging and fun to read. In a couple of spots the rhyming seems a bit like a stretch, but it is a good book to share with early readers. Students who have been exposed to Madeline in the classic picture books enjoy reading about her themselves.

Great rhyme and a great story of friendship.
Ludwig Bemelmans published his first Madeline book in 1939. Since then, she has become an unwavering icon of children's literature.

Recommends it for: beginning readers and parents reading with them
We've read many of the books in the Madeline series by Ludwig Bemelmans and discovered that his grandson, John Bemelmans Marciano, kept the series alive.

This is an early reader story about Madeline's dog, Genevieve. The narrative is rhyming and short and is a good book for young children to learn to read. Despite the fact that it was a bit young for our girls, we enjoyed reading it together.

Early reader version of a Madeline story. Clumsy rhymes and not nearly as charming as the originals.
