I received a new bunch of new 'Katie Woo' early readers. They are early chapter books by Fran Manushkin, illustrated by Tammie Lyon. Each book has author and illustrator information, a glossary, discussion questions, writing prompts, an activity, and extended info to go to the publishers at www.capstonekids.com and download activities. The stories are simple and easy to follow. A note to the publishers - Capstone - early readers need to have reading level and a word list would be nice. Another note to all publishers that publish early readers: establish a universal reading level, parents and their children looking for a certain AR level, or age level, or reading level of some kind and all the publishers do something different. It makes it very difficult for educators.
