KINDERGARTEN TO FIRST GRADE readers will read about a girl and her mom who show the ingredients and sequence needed to make a yummy pizza. At the end of the story, the girl enjoys the pepperoni pizza she and her mom made. Photographs and high-frequency words support early readers. Discussion questions after the reading help build interest and comprehension. Learner objectives: sequence events, high-frequency words.

The app features interactive glossary pages that encourage early readers to explore challenging words through pictures and example sentences.

Learning A–Z provides materials delivered online and through the iTunes Store that help children learn to read, write, and discover the wonders of science. All our materials are leveled so that children can access information at their reading level. Our leveled readers begin at level aa with labeling objects. In level A simple sentences are presented. With each level thereafter the sentences get more complex and the words become a little more difficult.

A QUICK GUIDE IN PLACING YOUR CHILD at the appropriate reading level is to understand that level aa to C provides average kindergarten instruction; D to J—first grade; K to Q—second grade; R to U—third grade; V to Z—fourth and fifth grade. The letters earliest in the alphabet match beginning of the year instruction while letters at the end of each grade range match skills at the end of that grade year.

This book is available as part of a twelve-book set in the Level E Library.

This riveting short story chronicles the amazing journey of a young girl trying to make a pizza. Should she make it just as her mother always has? Should she branch off of tradition and let her individuality shine through? This story expertly tackles such coming-of-age questions that we all had to find our own answers to. At first I was worried at the part where the girl messes up her pizza, but everything finally comes together in a spectacular ending which I won't ruin for the reader. All in all, this timeless narrative of traditional versus innovative paradigms had me at the edge of my seat for every riveting page. Bravo. Bravo indeed.

good job


Great pictures. Simple and with real kids. I only wish the words had the option to speak when touched.
