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 1 - Grade 3.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-- A utilitarian introduction to and description of whales. Although the illustrations are very textbookish, they are accurate and appealing. Much basic information about whales is given--types, the fact that they are mammals and not fish and what that means, how they care for their young and defend each other against predators, how they migrate, how they sleep in the water, and how and what they eat. Comparisons with familiar things bring the whales into the everyday world. Sentences are brief and easy to read. A brief historical look at whaling is also included. Useful if not inspired. --Frances E. Millhouser, Prince William Library System, Va.

Great book. I read this book to about 15 three year olds and they LOVED it. The pictures were clear and it really got them talking and asking questions.
