Leveled Reading is a system that is used to track children’s reading progression and help find books that correspond with that level.
Level J books begin to contain unfamiliar concepts and settings unfamiliar to most children. Level J books may include some beginning chapter books and make use of underlying organizational structure. Readers are reading from different genres and continue to be able to process more complex sentences.
I Want My Hat Back
The bear’s hat is gone, and he wants it back. Patiently and politely, he asks the animals he comes across, one by one, whether they have seen it. Each animal says no, some more elaborately than others. But just as the bear begins to despond, a deer comes by and asks a simple question that sparks the bear’s memory and renews his search with a vengeance. Told completely in dialogue, this delicious take on the classic repetitive tale plays out in sly illustrations laced with visual humor-- and winks at the reader with a wry irreverence that will have kids of all ages thrilled to be in on the joke.Read More View in Catalog
