No current Talk conversations about this book.

No official reading numbers for this book, but the sentences are very simple and the text is large. Here are some sample sentences.

Big Bird sweeps the floor.
Abby mops the floor.
Big Bird folds his blanket.

For all but the first chapter there is an introductory paragraph for adults to read. This paragraph gives the title and describes what the section is about. An example title would be: Big Bird Cleans.

But what kids are going to love is Abby and Big Bird, Oscar and Grover and The Count!

THIS WOULD be a good book to bring home early for children who like Sesame Street. It could first be used as a read-aloud and adults can point to colors and use objects to count. In that pre-reader stage, this book could then be used as practice, as children pretend to read, running their finger over the lines and using their memory. And then finally, if they are still interested, they can actually read it. ( )
