edwardRecommended Age: 4-8

Who will love this book?  Targeted for ages 4-8, all kids will LOVE this book!  Edward has just learned to read and he lets his imagination take over…leading him on an adventure with pirates that he will never forget!

Learning Opportunity: This is a great book to use with reluctant readers.  If they are caught up in “sounding out” the words and, in turn, lose the meaning of the story, reading can be a dreaded task.  But when they experience Edward’s imagination, they see that reading can be fun!  Encourage kids to use their imagination to visualize while reading, playing, and even in regular conversations.  Previewing the illustrations on a “picture walk” before reading can help spark their imaginations and help build excitement around the pending adventures!
