Wood, with lively illustrations by Sebastien Braun, this set of books stars Tug the Pup and an endearing group of characters who will lead beginners through the proven steps for successful reading. The Learn to Read with Tug the Pup books features sight word vocabulary, simple text, strong picture support, and character and plot development. The parent guide lists ideas for building early literacy skills through shared reading, games, and art activities. Plus stickers are included for added encouragement.

Review "Wood’s use of simple text, high-frequency words, and narrative structure are the ideal blend of skills to engage emerging readers. Braun’s charming illustrations provide a splash of color to the humorous tales. A parent guide lists suggestions for building early literacy skills through shared reading, games, and art activities. Stickers are also included for added encouragement. Refreshing additions to beginning reader sections, and fans of 'Bob' books (Scholastic), developed by Bobby Lynn Maslen, will be overjoyed." -- School Library Journal From the Back Cover About the Author Sebastien Braun studied fine arts in Strasbourg, France, and he is the author of many picture books, including I Love My Daddy and two books in this series, Toot and Pop! and Digger and Tom!
