About the Book:
Boldly going where Step into Reading has never gone before: comic readers are told almost entirely in action-packed dialogue! Simple, graphic paneled layouts introduce emergent readers to the joy of comics. This Step 1 comic reader tells the story of a girl and a robot whose friendship is tested when one of them gets a bit bossy. Step 1 stories have big type and easy words, rhyme and rhythm, picture clues, and easy-to-decode dialogue.
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 character and innovative line extensions such as Comic Readers, Math Readers, Phonics Readers, Sticker Books, andWrite-In Readers. Step into Reading is a complete literacy program with something to offer every child. Remember, a lifetime love of learning starts with a single step!
My Review: Adorable book with bright, vivid illusrations that tell a wonderful story by themselves. Drake adored searching for Robot all broken apart as he "hid" from his little girl. Nice strory to open up discussions on moral issues and how you treat your friends and equality in friendships with give and take from both parties. The author did a marvelous job of working in a nice theme and with language and graphics easily understanble to someon in pre-k and kinder. Loved the simplicity of character development it was consistent, believable and shoed emotions and feelings that someone in this age group could relate to. Drake thought the book was funny (robot horse) and sad (all the work he was forced to do) and overall enjoyed the book. We give it 5 stars.
