"Snoopy Came to Play" from Simon & Schuster is a Great Beginner Book to Read at Home or On the Go This Summer (Review)

Snoopy Came to Play

(Part of Peanuts)
Adapted by: Tina Gallo / Illustrated by: Vicki Scott
For Ages: 3 - 5


"Snoopy is ready to play tennis in this Ready-to-Go! Ready-to-Read starring the Peanuts gang!

Snoopy has his game face on and is ready to win his tennis match. But when the ball doesn’t behave and his frustration grows, Woodstock reminds him that the heart of the game is having fun.

Perfect for kids at the beginning of their reading journeys, Snoopy Came to Play was written for children who have learned the alphabet and are ready to start reading! And what better way to get kids excited than with a fun story featuring words they can actually read and starring their favorite beagle?

Each Ready-to-Go! Ready-to-Read includes a note to parents explaining what their child can expect, a guide at the beginning for readers to become familiar with the words they will encounter in the story, and reading comprehension questions at the end. Each Ready-to-Go! story contains no more than 100 words and features sight words, rhyming words, and repetition to help children reinforce their new reading skills. In this book, readers will learn twelve sight words, and eleven words from four word families. So come on and get reading with the Peanuts gang!"

My Thoughts:

Both of my girls love Charlie Brown and Snoopy, and love adding new Peanuts books to their growing book collections.  So, when we received "SNOOPY Came to Play" a couple of weeks ago, they were all happy, as they have been looking for fun books to read for the summer reading program at our library, and this was perfect for them to pass back and forth to read, and then talk about. This book is a "Ready-to-Go" early reader book from Simon & Schuster, and was a quick read for my girls.  But, if you have a struggling or beginning reader in your house, this book is perfect to share with your children, as it has rhyming and repetition and beginning sight words, making it perfect for early readers.  And, to help children with reading comprehension, there are a few questions at the end of the book that you can ask your children after they read the story, to see if they were comprehending what they were reading.  I love these types of books, and they really helped my girls become confident readers.

As far as the story, it was a cute story about sportsmanship and how you can't win them all.  Woodstock reminds Snoopy that it isn't all about winning, but about enjoying spending time with friends and having fun playing a game or sport you like.  My girls really enjoyed this book, and have read it a few times so far.  Fans of the Peanuts gang will love this book, perfect for summer reading at home, or on the go!
