My third son and his friends are loving this book.
It's a really clever book about what Pirate school might be like.
Some of the rules are: Never Cry Over Spilled Milk and Finders Keepers Losers Weepers!
It is a #2 All Aboard Reading book.
You have probably seen these types of books in the stores..
they have a level 1 that is for kids beginning to read,
then level 2 for Reading with help
and then level 3 for Reading Alone.
My son and friends were able to read this level 2 by themselves easily (They are in first grade), so naturally... I am thinking our next book should be a level 3.
I browsed the back cover of the book where they list the Titles of books in different levels.
I have to admit
I was very disappointed!
Tell me what you think.
Amistad: The Story of a Slave Ship
Barack Obama: An American Story
George Washington's Mother
Hillary Clinton; An American Journey
A Horse Named Seabiscuit
Just a few Words, Mr. Lincoln
Terror Below! True Shark Stories
I am soooo disappointed-- because we have loved loved loved many of the books by this company. Books like.... The Gingerbread Kid Goes to School and Me and My Robot.
They have helped my beginning reader... start reading... but now that he is "Reading Alone" the fun stories stop and his Political Training begins?
What in the World are they thinking? It's tough being a kid these days- if these are the themes they have to read.
So I am on a mission friends!
It's sad we can't grow with this company. (That would make my job too easy. )
But I accept the challenge.
I need to find a set of books that bridges the gap between easy beginning books with a few words on each page and easy chapter books (Magic Tree House level/ Weird School level) If you have any leads... let me know!
