Leo Lionni’s spirited story about a minnow and a tadpole is now available as a Step 3 Step into Reading book—perfect for children who are ready to read on their own!Series Overview: From its inception, Step into Reading has set the standard. Random House was the first trade publisher to: implement a leveling system that recognized the different developmental stages of beginning readers; offer a learning-to-read series as original paperbacks; and publish a mix of original and licensed titles. Step into Reading continues to be the industry leader with exciting fiction and nonfiction, favorite licenses and characters, and innovative line extensions. Remember, a lifetime love of learning starts with a single step!
Reading this book makes me want to get out the colored pencils and have inspiration. As I mentioned in my review of An Extraordinary Egg, these vintage picture books are being republished as level readers. In this instance again, as a Step into Reading Level 3 early reader perfect for the early reader reading alone. If you’ve set aside An Extraordinary Egg for your lessons on classifications to discuss reptiles and amphibians, you might also wish to pick up Fish is Fish as well. Here readers will be intrigued with amphibians, fish, birds, and mammals (and people!). This is a book about friendship and full of imagination perfect for inspiring the young readers. The colors in this reader (in my loaned e-galley) are so vibrant and while I enjoy Leo Lionni, I’m not familiar with them being quite so colorful. Pages 34-37 have interactive activities to immerse the reader to respond to the story.
