What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Six of the much-loved Pup and Hound first readers by Susan Hood have been collected here into one manageable volume. The stories included are: Pup and Hound, Pup and Hound Move In, Pup and Hound Stay Up Late, Pup and Hound in Trouble, Pup and Hound Play Copycats and Pup and Hound Hatch an Egg. The stories follow one another with only a title page separating them, so they can be read one after the other, or separately. Each is a gentle and humorous rhyming tale about two lovable dogs and the adventures they get into around the farm where they live. Though the older, wiser (and much bigger!) Hound often needs to help little Pup out of a scrape, he also finds he has a lot more fun when he looks at the world the way energetic Pup does. And, of course, all always ends well for the two good friends.These Level 1 first readers have easy vocabulary, simple sentences and lots of repetition and rhyme. “Pup gobbled up all the meat. He left nothing for poor Hound to eat! Never mind. Hound chewed the stick. Then Hound gave Pup a goodnight lick.” The playful illustrations by Linda Hendry provide visual clues to any unfamiliar words. Part of the Kids Can Read series, the Pup and Hound stories are a perfect choice for the youngest beginning readers who are making their first forays into the world of sentences and word recognition.
