This book is written using rhythm and rhyme, and is a good choice for a reluctant reader as well because of the "game" component. It is considered an easy reader. Here is a sample:
two musical notes,
and a bell on a cat.
There are plenty of juicier words throughout for a growing reader to sharpen his teeth on, such as fangs,anchor, horseshoe, cheetah, and smoky, to name a few.
Especially wonderful are the eight extra practice pages at the back, where the reader is challenged to find words that match. Let's hear it for visual discrimination! Yeah!
Do not forget to read this book in a scary, spooky voice! It will be monstrously fun!
Happy Reading and Playing!
Till Next Time, Nancy
