Fun stories with a word count of fewer than 50 words for emergent readers.
Zebra is longing for a cool drink at the water hole, but can he escape both Lion and Crocodile!.
The Tiddlers series features fun stories with a word count of fewer than 50 words for children who are just starting to read.
A word list at the beginning of the story allows for a quick check of the reader's ability to read and understand words before reading, and a puzzle at the end of the story encourages rereading for pleasure.
