Classic Tale for Beginning Readers - a review of "The Tortoise and the Hare"
on June 3, 2007
This little Ready-to-Read book is a Level One, which means according to the publisher that it is for those children who are "Starting to Read". As that is somewhat vague I went and looked up the Accelerated Reading [AR] description. "The Tortoise and the Hare" is listed as a 1.0 book, or essentially one for new first graders who are just beginning their school year.
Some text follows so you may judge for yourself:
Hey! Look at me!
Look at me run.
I can run faster than you, Squirrel.
Faster than you, Fox.
Faster than you, Bear.
Faster than you, Mouse.
I can run faster than anyone.
Four Stars. Good Read-aloud. Classic story that is nicely retold. Okay artwork. In my opinion, not a book for a true-beginning reader, but certainly my recently turned 5 y.o. son can read it. AR level 1.0.
