100 Ways to cook beans class?

Summary:

Despite his lack of interest (and against his better judgment) Mr. Putter and Tabby join Mrs. Teaberry and Zeke for the 100 Ways to Cook Beans cooking class. When Zeke finds a snack in another student's purse, the fun begins ... Putter style. 


Young Reader (8):
Mr. Putter and Tabby always make my daughter laugh. This is one she always wants to read cover to cover.

Parent Perspective:
Like Cynthia Rylant's other easy reader series (Henry and Mudge), these are fun, clever stories. Mrs. Teaberry's and Mr. Putter's friendship is always central to the plot, but it is very dynamic.


Reader Enjoyment Factors:

Humor, cute characters, and lots of action will keep kids reading until they have the whole story.

Content Awareness Factors:

Very minor: I regret that it was a lost opportunity to talk about "spilling the beans" as an idiom.


Type of Book:
This is an illustrated chapter book series for developing readers.
Educational Themes:

From friendship and compromise to social skills, there are lots of things you can explore with this book. Preschoolers, in particular, will enjoy the pets' antics ... giving you plenty of opportunity to ask "what would you do?" or "what is the right choice?"

Reading Level:
2.5
Recommended Age To Read By Yourself:
7 to 9
Recommended Age To Read Together:
4 to 8
Age of child:
Read by an 8-year-old girl.
Purchase Recommendation:
Borrow, at least. This is one of the few early reader series that I would consider buying. The stories are delightful and timeless.
