About the book...

This adorable little book is designed to build confidence in your child as he starts his awesome journey of becoming an avid  lifelong reader. 

 It features less than 50 unique words to become familiar with.  It uses word recognition and visual cues to help the new reader achieve his goals.  The words are all listed at the end of the book so you have a chart of the words involved with the story.  

The introduction has  "A Note to Parents & Caregivers."  It lists four ways, if utilized, will bring reading success to your child and making him a Reading Star!  

* Read the book aloud as a first introduction
* Run your fingers below the words as you read each line
* Give your child the chance to finish the sentences or read repeating words while you read the rest.
* Encourage your child to read aloud every day!  

The tale centres around a young girl and interaction with her cat as they play with balls, encounter the family dog and finally after lots of play curl up and snoooozzzzeee away!   If you are looking for a catalyst to kick-start your child's reading process this book will be a great asset.
