Paddington Bear has delighted readers of all ages for almost 60 years! Now part of the I Can Read line, Michael Bond's classic character will drum up the interest of beginning readers with his charming antics.
Paddington is having a wonderful time while on vacation with the Browns in a small French town. He loves exploring and meeting new friends. So how exactly does he end up marching through town as a drummer in the local band? Sure, he can keep the beat on the drum. But can he keep up with the band?
Paddington Plays On is a Level One I Can Read book, which means it's perfect for children learning to sound out words and sentences.
PreS-Gr 1--Paddington is back in this easy reader, this time visiting France. After a special greeting, he and the Browns are thrilled to learn that they have arrived in time for the town festival. Paddington has a wonderful time but learns that the band has a sick drum player. It's Paddington to the rescue! After practicing all day, he's ready to step in, but he can't see over the huge drum. Will he be able to keep up and follow along? Illustrated with pen and watercolor, this installment is a great adventure, has a nice sense of place, and ends with a BANG!
