Overview

The All Aboard Reading series features stories that capture beginning readers' imagination while developing their vocabulary and reading comprehension. The Picture Readers, appropriate for preschoolers, combine a very simple text with rebuses. Flash cards bound in the book help make the transition from the rebus to the printed word. As the levels progress, the stories get longer, and the print size gets smaller, preparing readers for longer books with chapters. All the books are illustrated in full color, and engage a child's curiosity with a range of topics from science to sports, history, and fantasy. Grades 2 - Grade 4.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Bruce Adelson
The latest addition to the "All Aboard Reading" series profiles four current National Football League stars: Barry Sanders, Jerry Rice, Troy Aikman and Deion Sanders. The gridiron exploits of these athletes as well as tidbits about their personal lives are included in this easy to read title. For example, we learn that San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Rice worked on construction sites with his father while growing up. He developed quick hands by catching bricks that his brother would toss to him while Rice stood atop a scaffold. As a professional, he has earned a reputation for rigorous training and detailed pre-game preparation. The Detroit Lions' Sanders, who teetered on the edge of delinquency at times as a boy, is one of major league sports most unselfish stars. He gave each of his offensive linemen $10,000 watches as a thank-you when he won the NFL's Offensive Rookie of the Year Award. This book is likely to appeal to the young football fans in your house, inspiring them to read more about some of their favorite players.
