What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

From Laura Gehl, author of One Big Pair of Underwear and Cat Has a Plan, comes a laugh-out-loud Ready-to-Go! Ready-to-Read about a hungry goat interrupting a sleepy cat’s naptime. Cat wants to nap, and Goat wants to eat. The problem is, every time Cat finds a cozy bed for napping, Goat eats it! When Goat feels sick from overeating and wants to take a nap himself, will Cat get revenge? Perfect for kids at the beginning of their reading journeys, Goat Wants to Eat was written for children who have learned the alphabet and are ready to start reading! And what better way to get kids excited than with a fun story featuring words they can actually read and starring some very funny animals? Each Ready-to-Go! Ready-to-Read includes a note to parents explaining what their child can expect, a guide at the beginning for readers to become familiar with the words they will encounter in the story, and reading comprehension questions at the end. Each Ready-to-Go! story contains around 100 words and features sight words, rhyming words, and repetition to help children reinforce their new reading skills. In this book, readers will learn seven sight words, and eleven words from four word families. So come on and get reading!
