We got this book out of the bargain section at Borders. I figured it was disposable entertainment for our cross-country flight. Well, it survived the trip and is a current favorite for our 3 year old daughter! She has the whole book memorized and thinks it is hilarous! She loves all the nasty bugs and things. She requests it over and over again.

Recommends it for: multisyllabic
Great for targeting multisyllabic words. The design is also very interactive so kids will enjoy this book.

I paired this with a craft activity during which we made backpacks out of paper bags and put different things in them for different power rangers since that's what my client is into. The craft activity targeted subject pronouns. (He gets the blue power ranger gloves. She gets the pink power ranger boots.)
