Basic language, word repetition, and whimsical illustrations, ideal for sharing with your emergent reader. The first step to helping children become great readers is reading aloud to them. Books at this level, like the Beginner's Bible stories, have short compelling stories, and are written with simple vocabulary. Repeated phrases allow young readers to read some words along with their parents. Many of the words are sight words children recognize. Active, engaging stories have appealing plots and loveable characters just for early readers.
