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. Preschool - Grade 1.

I was just browsing B&N and I thought I would see if they have the first book I read. After I read this book, I was able to read almost anything. It isn't difficult but it helps a child learn the basic words. Plus it is such a funny and cute story.

When I was growing up, I got so attached to this book. The pictures were simple, yet the story was just so cute. Even to this day, I still enjoy reading it.

When my sisters and I were younger we loved to read this story. It brings back such great memories for my sisters and myself. Thank you for carrying such a great classic childhood story.

I used to read a lot of books like this when I was a child, and other than Cinderella and 101 Dalmations, I remember this one. It must've left quite an impact b/c of all the books I do remember, this one never hit the big market like the Disney titles. Way to go, Morris!

My kids (girl 6, boy 4) loved this book. Morris was new to me, and the story was enjoyable, entertaining and funny.

Must have. I read this book when i was younger. This was the first book i learn to read bymyself.

The Morris books are classics and it's great to see them digitally. I wish the book could be read/seen in portrait orientation rather than landscape, the pictures would be bigger and separation of the pages less confusing. I rated it 4 stars because of the limitations of Nook, not the actual book.

I bought this for my Kindergartener because a lot of the books her teacher was giving her was way to easy. She loved it! We read 2 pages a day and about half way through she told me she was going to read more and by the time we were almost done she was reading 4-6 pages because she wanted to and not because she had to..

My son is required to fill out a reading log every night for homework. This "I can read" series, is something he can finish reading in one sitting. He is reading at a second grade level! This series has boosted his reading up one extra level, and he has enjoyed the experience.

My granddaughter recently turned four. She knows the alphabet, numbers and is starting pre-school this fall. We love to have story time together and Morris Goes to School had her laughing out loud. She used her counting and alphabet skills so we could read the book together. The illustrations are awesome with everyone having big smiles and lots of fun. Great Book!

My 5 1/2 year old son who is learning to read, had no trouble reading Morris Goes to School. We both found it very funny and entertaining. I am looking forward to buying a few more for my nook.

My boys, 3 & 4, love this book! They are able to access it themselves and hit the "read to me" button. They turn the pages and laugh with delight at Morris the Moose. Truly an entertaining read--

My little boy loves reading this book, and I'm sure all the other boys and girls will enjoy reading it as well.

My nephew starts kindergarten in the fall and when I purchased this for him I thought it would be a great story for him. From what I understand he loves it and all the books I have purchased for him over the past few months.
