The pictures are beautifully illustrated and the story was very entertaining and yet simple enough to use when teaching children to read.
MISS SMITH'S INCREDIBLE STORYBOOK, by Michael Garland, is one of those very magical stories that really appeal to children and make them want to read more.
When I finished reading the story the class informed me that they purchased the book for me because it reminded them of me reading to them every week.
Great for teaching phrases and words that express feelings and emotions to first grade common core rl1.4 standard.
Great pictures also!
Beautifully colorful and fun illustrations. This character (Miss Smith) is a winner for sure. Book is probably great for kids 5-7.Published 9 months ago by Zinderella
