Cars, colors, and funny animals abound in this simple Level B I Like to Read book for young readers.
The rhino loves his red car . . . which just happens to have a rhino-horn hood ornament. And the alligator loves her green car that has sharp teeth and spikes just like hers! The shark's car has a fin and a tail.
The funny animals in this book match their equally funny cars as they all make their way to a party!
With very simple text and detailed, cartoonish illustrations, this is a great read-aloud for kids who love cars-- and an ideal book for beginning readers just learning to read on their own.
The award-winning I Like to Read® series focuses on guided reading levels A through G, based upon Fountas and Pinnell standards. Acclaimed author-illustrators--including winners of Caldecott, Theodor Seuss Geisel, and Coretta Scott King honors--create original, high-quality illustrations that support comprehension of simple text and are fun for kids to read again and again with their parents, teachers or on their own!
Level B books, suitable for kindergarten readers, feature short sentences and high-frequency words. The illustrations provide clues to word meanings. When Level B is mastered, follow up with Level C.
