Product Description from Amazon: All Rookie Readers actively engage young readers, encouraging language development, building fluency, and promoting independent reading. By targeting a skill, like learning about rhymes, young readers are building fundamental reading skills with the help of fun, lively, colorfully illustrated stories.
Mary’s Review: A very cute rhyming reader for beginners, it tells the story of a father and son having fun washing the car together. The illustrations are cute, funny, bright and colorful. Included at the end of the book is a list of 38 easy words for your children to learn and identify.
I recommend this book for ages 4-7.
