Bunny and Red learn the value of forgiveness in this Level D book, perfect for kindergarten readers.
Bunny is excited about playing with her friends in the snow. But Red the Squirrel plays too rough—he keeps pulling mean pranks, claiming "It's just a joke!"
When his tricks backfire and his friends are the ones laughing, Red is upset. But instead of holding a grudge, Bunny invites him back into the group for cocoa and laughter. Compassion and empathy save the day in an easy-to-read story from Bruce Degen, the celebrated illustrator of The Magic School Bus series. . . And that's (s)no(w) joke!
The award-winning I Like to Read® series focuses on guided reading levels A through G, based upon Fountas and Pinnell standards. Acclaimed author-illustratorsincluding winners of Caldecott, Theodor Seuss Geisel, and Coretta Scott King honors—create original, high quality illustrations that support comprehension of simple text and are fun for kids to read with parents, teachers, or on their own!
Suitable for late kindergarten readers, Level D books feature wider vocabulary, longer sentences, and greater variety in sentence structure than Levels A, B, and C. When Level D is mastered, follow up with Level E.
