Brownie & Pearl get ready for bed in this snuggly Pre-Level 1 Ready-to-Read story.
What sorts of things do Brownie and her cat, Pearl, have to do before they're ready to hit the hay? First they take a bath and put on pajamas. (Well, Brownie puts on pajamas!) Then it's time for a snack and a story--about a cat, of course. And then it's upstairs for a good night's sleep snuggled up together in a warm, cozy bed!This adorable ready-for-bed story, originally published as a picture book, is now a Pre-Level 1 Ready-to-Read that's perfect for beginning readers.
PreS-Gr 1-Brownie (girl) and Pearl (cat) are tired. Together they go through their routine of bath, snack, and story before it's time to hit the hay. The trek to Brownie's room ends with the two snuggled under her moon-covered, pink-and-purple quilt. The text is written in short sentences suitable for beginner readers and perfect for sharing with toddlers at bedtime. Biggs's digitally rendered illustrations are full of bright colors, clean lines, and great expressions, and have plenty of white space. Adults should be prepared to explain the phrase "hit the hay." Sure to be sought after by fans of the previous books.-Catherine Callegari, Gay-Kimball Library, Troy, NH.
