Nancy, who likes to use fancy words, is excited to wear her elegant nightgown for Pajama Day at school, until best friend Bree and schoolmate Clara impress everyone by wearing matching pink polka-dot pajamas. Simultaneous.
I ended up purchasing this book and a few others to give out to some of the students that I tutor for Christmas. They loved them! The book was a little too hard for kindergarten readers, but by June they were able to read it on their own!
I bought several of this series for my 8 yr old daughter as she is struggling in reading.It gives her confidence to read a book and not struggle with the words and they use specific words that are just a tad bit higher in level of the book, for that word it has a page to look up the word and shows what the word means and how to sound it out! the stories also have a great message. My daughter no longer moans when i say "reading time" and we are now in the stage 2 I can read books. Her Teacher has seen an improvement in her reading and i give credit to these books(along with teacher's aide at school]
