Each of the books in the series include a Note to Grown-ups, that contains tips and suggestions to help encourage the child to read and learn more about God and His love, and a list of the words used in the book. The books are great tools for home and classroom. Using the story of Christmas (Luke 2:8-20), children are encouraged to learn more about God and His love while building reading confidence. This book emphasizes a special phonetic sound (short 'u') for pre-reader and emerging readers to practice. This product is part of the Accelerated Reader(TM) program and carries a point value of .5.
