Summary

Summary

P. D. Eastman's classic character Aaron the Alligator makes his early-reader debut! On this lazy day, Aaron is hot, tired, and hungry--perhaps a nice, juicy lemon will taste good? Blech! Lemons are not good to eat! Follow daffy Aaron as his hazy, lazy day becomes less lazy and more crazy! Young readers will giggle along as they tackle the simple words and sentences all on their own. Aaron the Alligator is a star of The Cat in the Hat Beginner Book Dictionary and a long-out-of-print series called Everything Happens to Aaron.

Step 1 Readers feature big type and easy words for children who know the alphabet and are eager to begin reading. Rhyme and rhythmic text paired with picture clues help children decode the story.
