Annie and Snowball (her pet rabbit) love to play with cousin Henry and his dog Mudge. But Annie loves teacups, too. Little boys and big dogs don't like dainty things, but they love Annie, and they want to help her find other teacup lovers. When Annie decides to create a Teacup Club, Henry is there to help paint the sign, make the cookies, and, best of all, share the leftovers.
Fans of Henry and Mudge are sure to love Annie, who has a few more frills and a little less slobber!
Cynthia Rylant is a master at creating early reader stories. Through words and in illustration, her characters come to life and immediately endear themselves the their readers. The story is likely to inspire little girls to create their own teacup clubs. The chapters are presented subtly (simple titles, not numbers), perfect to keep reluctant readers reading longer than they had planned.
This illustrated story promotes sharing a story and helps kids who are becoming independent readers.
This carefully crafted story, with repetitive words and phrases, offers context reading that will help reinforce sight words for remedial readers. The story has a lovely theme, making it easy to transition from reading to asking questions about feelings and events that can help with comprehension, too.
