Summary

Summary

P. D. Eastman's classic character Aaron the Alligator makes his early-reader debut! Aaron can get into trouble doing just about anything--playing ball, planting seeds . . . even walking! Kids will giggle along as they tackle the simple words and sentences all on their own. Aaron 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.
