Book Description

10 Aug 2010 Beginner Books(r)
What’s a better present than a classic Beginner Book? Six of them—for less than the price of two! Following on the success of The Big Blue Book of Beginner Books and The Big Green Book of Beginner Books, we’ve taken the complete text and art of P. D. Eastman’s Sam and the Firefly, Robert Lopshire’s I Want to Be Somebody New!, Marilyn Sadler’s The Very Bad Bunny, Mike McClintock’s Stop That Ball!, Al Perkins’s The Digging-est Dog, and Joan Heilbroner’s Robert the Rose Horse and bound them together in one sturdy hardcover omnibus. This is a perfect introduction to reading that will whet young readers’ appetites for additional books in the Beginner Book series.

1.0 out of 5 stars Stories are a bit rough 3 Feb 2013
By RookieWife - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I am a mother of a toddler and I think this book of stories does not have the best wording. We have all of them. I could not find this in the store so I ordered it online. Now I know why. One story about a bad dog says "maybe we should let you there to drown.". Not something I want to read or explain etc. another story is about a very bad bunny but it doesn't really come around to explain why they should not be bad. Stick with the green, blue or purple books.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Kindergartener loves to read this book! 6 Dec 2010
By Suzanne Riffel - Published on Amazon.com
My daughter who is in in kindergarten has recently learned to read. She has a pretty good mastery of basic sight words and has been reading very basic books for about 10 months. A lot of the 'beginner' books out there are too easy or too boring ("The cat sat. Mat sat. The cat sat on mat....."). This book is a perfect balance of entertainment with silly story lines and rhyming words to easily keep her attention. If your child has completed the VERY early reading books (such as the Bob books), and has a pretty good handle on sight words and basic phonics, he or she will do well reading this with minimal assistance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value and kids love it 15 May 2011
By Mommy & Amazon Shopper - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
My kids love Dr. Seuss and these are beginner books so they are easier for my 1st grader to read on her own. Great value over purchasing each book individually. We bought the Big Blue, Big Green and Big Red at the same time and enjoy all of them.
