Intended for first-time readers, this Level 1 storybook from the Start to Read! series, helps make reading easy. It has beginning vocabulary, many basic sight words, and a short sentence or two on each page. In Nine Men Chase a Hen! the whimsical story also helps develop skill in counting: “Three men have a pet. Four hens get very wet.” You’ll find that the repetition, rhyming words, short sentences and entertaining illustrations will add up to reading success! Most of the words in the story are typically introduced in first grade. You may need to help your child sound out some words, then after several readings together, encourage him or her to read alone. This is just one selection in Dr. James Hoffman’s Start to Read! Early Reading Program, which includes storybooks across three progressive reading levels.
