Madeline of Paris continues her adventures in this story of manners-now in Step into Reading, the premier leveled reader line.
Madeline is hosting a fabulously dainty tea party. The girls are neatly dressed and on time. Then her naughty friend Pepito arrives late, and havoc ensues! A good friend like Madeline helps Pepito realize the power of an apology--a great conversation started for children. This easy-to-read book is written in rhyme, and there are full-color illustrations throughout in the same charming style as the classic Madeline books.
Step 2 Readers use basic vocabulary and short sentences to tell simple stories, for children who recognize familiar words and can sound out new words with help. Rhyme and rhythmic text paired with picture clues help children decode the story.
