I Wish I Was a Wolf
Ranger Rick explorers can learn all about wolves in this reader full of fascinating facts, vivid wildlife photographs, a Wild Words glossary, and a paws-on activity that teaches kids how to talk like a wolf! Ranger Rick, the iconic raccoon ambassador from Ranger Rick magazines, asks questions like: How do you practice being a grown-up?
Ranger Rick: I Wish I Was a Wolf is a Level One I Can Read book, which means it’s perfect for children learning to sound out words and sentences.
You can tell I'm old-- I want to pair these Ranger Rick Nature books with the encyclopedia, so young readers can look up an article and have an adult read the facts about wolves, and then read this easy text out loud and compare the two. A trip to a local library's 590 section will serve the same purpose, and the chance to compare pictures and different facts about animals will give children a good early background in research. I Can Read books make excellent gifts that can be passed on to schools or day care when the child has moved beyond leveled readers.
