Awards and Reviews
“This Step 1 entry into Step into Reading series gives teachers the opportunity to branch out from apples and pumpkins in their farm units….In keeping with the level of the text, the sentences are short, with simple vocabulary that concentrates on verbs, nouns and adjectives and allows the illustrations to provide the context clues needed by beginning readers…A nice addition to school libraries looking to expand on the farm topic.” Kirkus Reviews, April 15, 2009
