Uni Joins the Team (Uni the Unicorn)

Illustrated by Brigette Barrager
Look inside
Uni the Unicorn for early readers! Another exciting Step 2 Reader about teamwork featuring the most popular sport for kids!

Uni loves playing sparkle ball and is very good at it! But Goldie and Silky want to play soccer. Uni has never played soccer before. It doesn't look fun, and there are unicorns Uni doesn't know. Uni tries but makes mistakes. Uni sees a new friend mess up, too, and encourages him to keep trying and to believe in himself. Trying something new is fun when you work together!
 
Fans of the picture books, as well as new Uni fans, will be excited to join this bighearted unicorn and friends on a new adventure of learning about caring for another and believing in oneself.
 
Look for all the Uni stories, including:
Uni the Unicorn Bakes a Cake
Uni the Unicorn Goes to School
Uni's First Sleepover
and more!

Step 2 readers use basic vocabulary and short sentences to tell simple stories. They are perfect for children who recognize familiar words and can sound out new words with help.
