Written for children learning to read on their own, it's filled with words and concepts kids encounter every day. Perfect for reading aloud or reading alone, it's also great for starting discussions about which kinds of animals have hair and which do not. With bright, energetic artwork by Andrew Joyner, this is the kind of fun, easy reader that is hard for kids to put down!
