We Are Growing is one of the first books to be published in the Elephant & Piggie Like Reading series. Elephant & Piggie make an appearance and provide an introduction and closing for the book, which will delight their young reading fans.
Watching the grass grow has never been as fun or interesting! As each blade of grass begins to grow, they discover that they are all different and have different strengths. Some are curliest or crunchiest…except for one who isn’t sure what he is the most at. His friends try to help him, and in the end he discovers his strength.
This book is excellent for beginning readers. It features a controlled vocabulary and fun story that will keep children interested. It also features the superlative form of words, so this could be a companion book to a grammar lesson.
Fans of Elephant & Piggie will enjoy this book. Don’t forget to look for the hidden Pigeons!
