Vampoodle (Step Into Reading: Step 2 Reading with Help)

by Joan Holub (Author) Tim Bowers (Illustrator)

This early reader in verse entertains with silly dogs getting up to some Halloween hijinks.

The crazy dogs from Joan Holub's Step 2 reader Shampoodle are back and as spirited as ever! There's a puppy party in the backyard, but the scaredy-dogs skedaddle when "ghosts" and "ghouls" begin to arrive. What should these pups do? Don costumes and join the Halloween parade!

Step 2 Readers use basic vocabulary and short sentences to tell simple stories. For children who recognize familiar words and can sound out new words with help.

Review quotes

"The Step into Reading books are colorful and bright, with humorous illustrations that hold the interest of even our most primary students. The books are perfect for our second-language learners, who, because of age, need high-interest books with controlled lower-level vocabulary that look like 'real books, ' not 'baby books.'"
