From Booklist

"Back-to-School Lesson #6: Never think that starting school with your little brother could be anything but a total and complete disaster," says Will, who is looking forward to his first day of third grade. Will is also dreading his rowdy little brother Steve's first day of kindergarten at the same school. As expected, Steve's high jinks cause one upset after another, culminating in an all-school food fight. Divided into brief chapters, this Step into Reading title is well tuned to a newly confident reader's abilities. Simply constructed sentences and brisk dialogue make use of lively vocabulary and plenty of active verbs. Large color illustrations extend the mayhem with cartoonish characters, exaggerated expressions, and lots of activity. . Engberg, Gillian --This text refers to the library edition.

Great book for third grade! As a homeschool mom, I look for books that show good paragraphs and sentence structure that is also age-appropriate. This is a great book for 3rd graders.

4.0 out of 5 stars INGLES SENCILLO Y DIVERTIDO
Reviewed in Spain on December 2, 2019
Precioso libro que nos cuenta la historia de un niño que empieza en tercer curso de primaria y de cómo convive con todas las trastadas que hace su hermano pequeño en infantil, de buena calidad, con tapas blandas para una mayor manejabilidad, aunque ha llegado con las puntas algo tocadillas.

Inglés simple para lectores de nivel 4, con una letra de buen tamaño para una fácil comprensión y lectura, amenizado con unas ilustraciones preciosas y escogidas con muy buen gusto, que consiguen hacer comprender mejor el contexto de las frases y muestran explícitamente lo que se relata.

Ayuda a tu pequeñ@ a avanzar con el ingles, tan necesario hoy en día y para el futuro de la nueva generacion.

Espero que mi opinión os haya ayudado.
