From the publisher: In this 3 in 1 bind-up of VeggieTales I Can Reads, Junior learns that even pirates have to go to school, the town of Bumblyburg takes an angry mud bath, and Larry forgets to listen … again! Young readers follow their favorite Veggie friends in easy-to-read stories that help teach early reading skills as well as sound morals and Bible-based life lessons. Books included in this title include:
- Pirate in Training
- LarryBoy and the Mudslingers
- Listen Up, Larry
As a parent, I found the stories hitting my kids right in the sweet spot. We enjoy VeggieTales and this book was a great way to practice reading skills with favorite characters. I don't always agree with the rating put on different early reader books, but I found Pirates, Mess Detectives, and a Superhero to be right on the money. In addition to the reading skills provided, I like the Biblical principles shared in each story as well.
Overall, this book is a great way for beginning readers to practice their skills, find some entertainment, and be exposed to valuable truths all at the same time. I (and my kids) highly recommend this book.
I received a preview copy of this book from Zondervan in exchange for an honest review.
