stepping stones  
Easy readers, early chapter books, predictable text, patterned books: all of these can help us prepare students for a lifetime of reading. Here are a couple of books from the STEP INTO READING series from Random House. Level 1 (BALLET STARS) is a ready to read for preschoolers and kindergarten kids. Level 3 (PRETTY PENNY COMES UP SHORT) is for primary students ready to try reading on their own.




BALLET STARS by Joan Holub with illustrations by Shelagh McNicholas presents text in rhymed couplets as young girls prepare for a ballet recital. <178>




PRETTY PENNY COMES UP SHORT by Devon Kinch gives readers Penny and her pals trying to raise funds for Doodle's Animal Farm. She and her friends and her trusty sidekick piggy bank named Iggy decide to hold a Drive In Movie Night in the neighborhood to raise funds to help out. <179>
