I have been racking up on school supply deals at the Target Dollar Spot, but this is by far my favorite find.
I picked up the book My Friends Tigger & Pooh The Case of the Sticky Sticks. It's an easy reader level 1 Pre K-Grade 1.
First, Cricket actually enjoyed the story and has asked to read it over and over again. I actually enjoy reading it so far too.
Second, she is already able to fill in words from the story if I stop reading. I am sure this is due to repetition, memorization, and context clues NOT actual reading. However, I point to the words as I read, and I make sure she looks at the word she is "reading".
All in all, this was totally worth the $1 price tag, I only wish they had more books there on her reading level.
