This comical introduction to cause and effect is ideal for emergent readers, who look for cues in simple rhymed text and bright, bold art as they take their first steps toward reading independently.
When a twister hits the pond near Farmer Brown’s farm, some very odd things happen. The fish and frogs take flight. They land in some unlikely places—like the barn and the pigs’ trough—setting off an uproarious chain of events that affects the entire farm. Once the weather subsides and the farmer and his family emerge from the storm cellar, they encounter a whole new world, including some unexpected (and four-legged) tenants in their house!
Step into Reading is a complete literacy program with something for every child. The program offers five steps to reading success. Children can progress through the steps at their own speed, developing confidence in their reading, no matter what their grade. Every book’s step is printed on the cover and the spine. Each title contains a fun story and is filled with colorful art.
