When Pretty Penny learns that Doodle's Animal Farm is in need of donations, she knows it's up to her and pet pig, Iggy, to save the day! The pair quickly brainstorm a fundraiser—running their very own movie theater. Everyone works hard to ensure the event's success, but at the end of the day, the money raised sure looks tempting to Iggy! Will he find the strength of character to share the proceeds with the animals in need? Or will he have to learn the hard way that dishonesty comes with a high price tag? This charming beginning reader about financial and social responsibility brings the successful Pretty Penny franchise to a whole new group of readers—those ready to read on their own.

The Step Into Reading Series is one of my favorite for children learning how to read. One reason is that I think the levels are appropriately marked for each stage. Pretty Penny Comes Up Short is a Step 3 book which makes it most appropriate for children who are beginning to read independently, have a basic knowledge of sight words, and have some decoding skills.

Pretty Penny is a sweet girl who wants to help Doodle's Animal Farm. She even teaches Iggy the pig about honesty and what it means to help others. This is a great addition to your early reader collection.
