Come on a playdate to a magical house in this wildly imaginative graphic reader!
Have you ever been to a house with a Gem Room? Or a Bubble Room? Or a Yarn Room? No? Then come with Mia to her friend Pie's home, where everyone wears costumes, cacti grow up to the ceiling, and there's a hedge mage in the back yard! Critically acclaimed comics artist Laura Knetzger pens a sweetly inventive story for beginning readers that not only introduces the senses and basic sense words ("shiny," "soft," "fuzzy"), but also primes children for their first visits to friends' homes--and encourages them to appreciate the differences between their family and others.
I Like to Read Comics are created for kids just learning to read. Sequential art and simple text--and a powerful relationship between the two--are perfect for developing readers.
