Every Saturday is an adventure for these feisty triplets!
Triplets Ana, Bella, and Carlos are always looking for an adventure. And on Saturday mornings they always seem to find one!
This Saturday, the triplets are going to the Pumpkin Fair! Ana wants to go on a ride. Bella would rather find the horses. And Carlos wants to listen to music. But the triplets have to stay together. Will they find an adventure perfect for three very different personalities?
The triplets want to do something fun this Saturday. When Ana suggests the Pumpkin Fair, Carlos and Bella quickly agree. Once at the fair, they are faced with many choices of things to do. Their parents have told them to stay together. Ana wants to find a ride that goes up and down. Bella spots horses she would like to ride. Carlos is attracted to the band and listening to music. Each child yells a preference in hopes of convincing the other two to agree. No consensus emerges. Ana heads toward the Ferris wheel; Bella wants the petting zoo; and Carlos skips to the sound of music nearby. The bewildered parents look around for the triplets. Then they spot them—riding the merry-go-round which has horses that go up and down with music in the background. The Pumpkin Fair is perfect. Large, colorful illustrations depict a loving family. A Level 1 Reader with sight words, words to sound out, and simple sentences. Part of the "The Saturday Triplets" series. Reviewer: Phyllis Kennemer, Ph.D.
