Annie and Snowball and the Book Bugs Club - Cynthia Rylant

Released February 2011

Part of the Ready-to-Read series of books. this Level 2 book features a more detailed storyline, varied sentence structure, paragraphs and short chapters.

The story itself finds Annie and her cousin Henry enjoying summer vacation. When they see that the library is sponsoring a reading club, called the Book Bugs Club, the youngsters decide to give it a try.

They keep track of what they read in a special notebook and receive stickers and other goodies for the number of books they finish. The pair is also invited to a special club picnic where they meet other Book Bug members.

The story is simple, but it does encourage the reader to keep reading. Mom and dad might wish to take note of the idea of the book club and have their son or daughter write down titles of completed book for special treats or outings. The more fun you can make reading, the better off your child will be in the long run
