Owl and Penguin: Best Day Ever (I Like to Read Comics) (Hardcover)
Two feathered friends are Frog and Toad for the emoji generation in this delightful graphic novel series for emerging readers.
Owl wants to play catch. But Penguin wants to play tennis! Which should they play?
Sometimes best friends disagree. Though Owl and Penguin are opposites, they like to solve their conflicts with creative play. From conquering fears to flying a runaway kite, there’s nothing these pals can’t get through together.
In five nearly wordless stories, expressive art leads the storytelling, supplemented by simple text captions and emoticon-style images in speech bubbles. This innovative format supports visual literacy and sight word recognition for the earliest independent readers. With warm humor and a joyful palette, it’s perfect for kids to giggle over on their own.
I Like to Read® Comics are perfect for kids who are challenged by or unengaged in reading, kids who love art, and the growing number of young comics fans. Filled with eye-catching art, humor, and terrific stories, these comics provide unique reading experiences for growing minds. Like their award-winning I Like to Read® counterparts, these books are created by celebrated artists and support reading comprehension to transform children into lifelong readers.
