Originally created by Dr. Seuss, Beginner Books encourage children to read all by themselves, with simple words and illustrations that give clues to their meaning.
Moose is amazed when he sees a sign by the side of the road that says "Moose Crossing." He must be very important to have his own sign, although his best friend, Hildy, doesn’t agree. When tourists arrive, hoping to catch sight of him, Moose finds he can’t go anywhere without being recognized. Suddenly his life isn’t as simple as it used to be. Maybe being famous isn’t all that great. Stephanie Green’s witty humor and Joe Mathieu’s lively black-and-white artwork make this a not-to-be-missed transitional reading book.
Max wants to feel needed, but no one wants his help with anything. Then his aunts show up for a visit—and they need his help with everything. Between making their snacks, running their baths, fixing their appliances, and preparing their beds, Max is exhausted. Will they ever leave so Max can get back to relaxing?
“The Cat in the Hat’s Learning Library shows young readers that books can be entertaining and educational at the same time. This is a wonderful series!” —Barbara Kiefer, Ph.D., Charlotte S. Huck Professor of Children’s Literature, Ohio State University
Mrs. Millie has lots of fun teasing her kindergartners. She tells them to hang up their goats, eat gorilla cheese sandwiches, and to remember to wear their bats and kittens when they go outside for recess. Coupled with hilarious artwork that literally interprets each of Mrs. Millie’s "mistakes," this lighthearted read-aloud sets a typical school day on its ear, even as it teaches a subtle lesson on wordplay.
