The Sloth family loves to rest, relax, and most importantly, take things slow. One day, the Sloth Family decides to get a pet. At the pet store, they think that the turtle is too slow, the fish is too boring, but the little puppy that is just sleeping in his cage seems,'just right!' For a little while, everything seems to be going along just fine. That is until their little puppy starts doing puppy things like: chewing, running, and making a mess! What is the Sloth family going to do? Will they be able to take care of 'puppy' or will they need to give him up? A humorous story for the Level 3 reader.

Mr. and Mrs. Farmer think that Pig is the BEST pig in the world. Pig likes to eat, run, and sleep-but most of all he LOVES to sit and sink down low in the mud. One day farmer's wife goes on a cleaning spree. She cleans the house, the barn, the stables, the chicken coop, and unfortuantely all of pig's mud. This makes pig mad, so he runs away in search of some mud. Follow pig on his quest for mud as he experiences one misadventure after another to its hysterical conclusion. This is another book for the beginning reader to love by Arnold Lobel.

Snake and Lizard

Add Your Comments | Add to MyBookList | Email Review
What happens when two very different desert animals become friends? Their adventures and arguments are described through a series of short chapters. The beautiful color illustrations depict the desert setting and the creatures that live there. This book would appeal to easy chapter-book readers that like reptiles and would also work well when read aloud.
