This engaging book is aimed at beginning readers. Most pages have four 'voices': Banana the bat's words are easy to read, the poem helps build phonological awareness through rhyme, the main story helps develop vocabulary and grammar (probably this part will be read to the child at first), and, finally, the mouse asks a question to encourage prediction and engagement. This book is a fun way to start reading and to build vocabulary and grammar skills! It will become a favorite! Most books that beginning readers can read themselves do not introduce new words or complex sentences. This leveled approach aims to get children reading themselves, while building vocabulary and syntactic competence. As a bonus, the child can decide if the main characters are male or female in this generic version. Contact the author if you'd like a version with your child's name as one of the characters). Also in Kindle version.
