Join the Band

By Pippa Goodhart

  • Paperback
  • £4.99

Fun stories of under 50 words for emergent readers.

Dog loves music and wants to join the band. Cat, Bird and Rabbit can't stand Dog's howl...but then he discovers his talent for drumming!

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.
