This children’s picture story book is suitable as a read alone book for anyone learning to read, learning English, learning English as a second language and as a bed time reader for parents introducing children to reading. While the book entertains, more emphasis is put towards the educational aspect. This is the reason why this book, one in a series of seven books, makes extensive use of sight “flash” words from the Dolchlist, covering pre primer to third grade level.
Familiar names are used for all the animal characters in the book to enable children to identify with the characters and kindle their imagination. Pages in the book are done separately to address the issue of word and image distortion on some e-readers. The book is written in large words to make it easy to read.
In this book, Sophia Ostrich and Ava Fawn decide to go to the Animal Christmas Party together. Sophia Ostrich’s eyes look puffed and pretty. Ava Fawn wants her own eyes to look like Sophia’s, but her mother told her not to try out all the things other young animals try. What will Ava do?
