Summary: This picture book is the playful story of Arthur challenging his younger sister into reading ten words with a reward of ice cream! Together they explore many components of their town. Through their many adventures, they learn together that sometimes words can have instructive meaning than what they initially believed!

Personal Reaction: This was a very playful book! I love how it reminds me of my siblings and how we would challenge one another to make the other learn and grow!

Classroom Extensions: First, I believe this serves as a great tool where I could have students pair up and move to different stations in a classroom to identify words that were written on a small board there. Next, I think it would be great to put items that matched to the words at the same station so students could identify with the object to the words meaning. ( )

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. ( )
