This charming story follows Arthur and D.W. as D.W. shows Arthur all the words she can read. Great for siblings to read together, or for beginning readers. ( )

Arthur learned to read at school. He challenges his little sister to read 10 words on their walk and he will buy her an ice cream. She id and they enjoyed ice cream together. ( )

This book can help new readers learn to read with the easy words that are in the book. It can be used during a reading unit in the classroom. I loved the book because it is humorus and it shows how D.W. is being competitive and wanting the ice cream. ( )

Arthur is proud that he can read all by himself, talks about how much he enjoys it. Bets his sister D.W. an ice cream cone that she cant read 10 words by the time they get home. She does and gets her ice cream, cute story. good for showing reading is fun.
