Here’s a short but fun book reminiscent of Dr. Seuss’s Hop on Pop or P.D. Eastman’s Go, Dog Go!, in that it also has lots of repetition and mostly two- to five-letter words that are easier for ultra-beginner readers to recognise, thus helping to build up their reading confidence.
But the thing about these two books that can put off reluctant readers, is that they are pretty long reads. See Me Run has fewer pages, which is less intimidating.
The lively illustrations and engaging storyline about a pack of carefree, playful dogs who dig up more than they bargained for, also makes this a book that kids will more readily pick out to read on their own. Look out for the fun twist at the end!
