Look inside
Uni the Unicorn for early readers! This Step 2 Step into Reading book about Uni and friends going to school is great for back-to-school time, or any day of the year!

It's the first day of school! Join Uni on this all-new adventure in the land of unicorns! Unicorns can fix things with their horns, and Uni wants to learn. But learning anything takes time, practice, and belief in yourself. And unicorn magic only works if you're helping others. At first, Uni doesn't have a very magical horn. Will Uni be able to fix a nest and help the birds?

Uni the unicorn is a charming and relatable character! Fans of the picture books, as well as new Uni fans, will be excited to join this bighearted unicorn on an amazing journey. Look for all the Uni stories, including 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.
