Your early reader will delight in the tales of Patter-Paws the Fox, Sharp-Claws the Lobster, Lusty Lion, Trusty Mouse and many more. Brien Masters has taken great care in crafting the structure and style of the stories. The language, letter-patterns, progressions of word structures and sound sequences, have all been molded with the intention of building up the child's confidence. This leads to the more disciplined work further on in the book. Ages 7-9.
