Overview

This series of affordable paperbacks offers an appealing variety of fiction and nonfiction by such popular authors as Jean Marzollo, Joyce Milton, Richard Scarry, and Joanna Cole—all carefully geared to the particular reading level of the reader. Using large, bright, full-page pictures and repetition to reinforce word comprehension, the Early Step Into Reading level is perfect for the just-beginning set. While Step 1 uses the same large type, this level offers greater story lines and more words per page. Step 2 moves into more complicated stories with an expanded vocabulary, and in Step 3, readers encounter paragraphs of text and a denser plot line. By Step 4, the books have chapters and feature many thrilling nonfiction topics. Grade 2 - Grade 3.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2-3 When Sam's cousin from Mexico comes to spend a year with Sam and his family, he teaches Sam's second-grade classmates how to play soccer. Marzollo successfully combines basic soccer terminology and story into this easy-to-read book. Sentence structure is short, yet the vocabulary is conversationally modern (``This is awesome!''). Marzollo even introduces some beginning Spanish terms through cousin Marco. Sims keeps the action moving with her colorful scenes of students bouncing the soccer ball off their head and passing it. This will be a welcome addition to easy-to-read section along with Hoff's Soft Skull Sam (HBJ, 1981; o.p.). Blair Christolon, Prince William Library, Manassas, Va.
From the Publisher
"The story line is brisk, and the lively drawings are effective. An entertaining light read with simple sentences and lots of appeal: the bicultural element adds a nice touch."--Booklist.
