Product Description:

As the story begins, we meet Mole, who grows tired of his thorough spring cleaning and can't resist a break to enjoy the spring weather above his den. He ambles along, enjoying the sunshine and the busyness of the other animals until he comes to the river, which entrances him with its sights ands sounds; he has never seen a river before. Water Rat finds him in this state, introduces himself, and they instantly become friends. Rat then invites Mole on a picnic, where he is introduced to Rat's other river-dwelling friends. From that point on, Mole accompanies his river friends on all sorts of adventures, from a venture in the Wild Wood to see Mr. Badger, to an ill-fated road trip with Mr. Toad's gypsy cart, to a mission to stop Mr. Toad from tearing up the highways and scattering frightened animals with his new motor car. A delightful, whimsical read where each animal has a most proper and unique personality, this is a great read-aloud! Unabridged versions; please note there is a word or two which may be offensive. - Jess

Category Description for Logos Reading and Comprehension Series:

If given a choice, most young readers will choose a book over a "reader" style collection of stories. Why? The stories are interesting, the illustrations engaging, and they seem more "manageable". Okay, so why not teach reading comprehension and beginning literature skills using wonderful children's books? Maybe because you don't want to invest in study guides for each book. Or maybe because you think there needs to be just a little more organized coverage of skills than you might come up with on your own. Or, maybe you just haven't found the right resource. Well, Logos Press has answered all these "maybes" by creating worksheets to go along with some great children's literature. These reproducible worksheets are compiled into spiral bound books and incorporate both the answers and notes for the teacher. Children have seven kinds of questions to answer: matching, multiple choice, fill-in-the-blank, drawing a picture, listing, vocabulary definitions, and essay-type. Beginning Literature 1 and 2 includes worksheets for each book plus a sample reading comprehension worksheet that functions as a book report form identifying and describing main characters as well as listing the book's happenings at the beginning, middle, and end. These worksheets provide an excellent introduction to literature studies and reading comprehension by encouraging both thinking about the reading selection and expressing those thoughts in a cohesive manner. A grading label (for reading, English, and spelling) is included on each worksheet. The teacher's instructions include guidelines for grading, and a complete answer key is included.
