Overview

In 1957, Harper published its first I Can Read� title, Little Bear, written by Else Holmelund Minarik and illustrated by Maurice Sendak. Large type, simple vocabulary, chapter-like divisions, and decorative pictures made Little Bear perfect for emerging readers�they could read the story comfortably and not feel overwhelmed by the text. Following suit came such classics as Peggy Parish�s Amelia Bedelia series, Lillian Hoban�s books about Arthur the monkey, and Syd Hoff�s popular Danny and the Dinosaur. Many books in this series are special in the depth of emotion evoked�Little Bear, the Frog and Toad books by Arnold Lobel, and Daniel�s Duck by Clyde Bulla, to name a few�and all are enjoyed by children of all ages. Grade 2 - Grade 4.
