The Play Book Pack


Fun times are around the corner with these books made with sturdy, recycled paper. This pack of Little Readers includes nine books that have one, two, or three words per page accompanied by whimsical watercolor paintings and line drawings by artist, Cecile Dyer. Young children will explore fun, imaginary worlds as they make sock puppets, join a band of animal musicians, and even take a trip in a rocket ship! 

The Play Book Pack is the most accessible of all our Little Reader book packs. The simple pattern and easy concepts on each page are very supportive, and the pictures are fun and interesting. The artwork and reading structure will give your child a successful early reading experience that engages their imagination.

This book pack is perfect for soon-to-be readers who love to create, play, and build.
