The Lovereading4Kids comment

First Reading: Level Four. The folk tale of an independent and rather fast pancake that learns to it's cost not to trust the sly fox. Building readers’ stamina still further with all 48 pages devoted to the story (up to 750 words). The narrative is more developed, there is more text on the page, and sentence structure and vocabulary are more descriptive. Original fiction, folk tales and fairytales coupled with terrific illustrations will provide plenty of variety for the reader. Will be enjoyed with equal enthusiasm if read alone or together with a parent.
