Children's LiteratureWhen a new student rolls into the kindergarten class, the kids do not quite know what to make of his wheelchair. It does not take very long to find out that he is the same as the other students in more ways than he is different. He paints and sings and laughs and loves good stories. This brief and brightly-illustrated story reinforces the new skills of early readers. A vocabulary list appears before the story to help introduce several dozen words that will be used repeatedly in the book. Short sentences and detailed pictures tell the story, giving a boost of confidence to even the most reluctant readers. This is a great choice for home practice. The title is part of the "My First Reader" series. 2005, Children's Press/Scholastic, Ages 4 to 7.
