Horn Book
This fanciful large-trim early reader pairs McPhail's gentle pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations with an extremely limited vocabulary ("A cow can jump. / A hippo can jump. / We can jump"). The seeming weightlessness of the various creatures in the pictures lends the book a pleasing silliness--particularly when the cow jumps over the moon and the hippo happily bounces along--but it doesn't overpower the simple reading lesson.

A funny story with charming illustrations--about friendship, animals, and jumping!--simple enough for the youngest readers to read on their own. Guided Reading Level A.

I can jump. She can jump.

A bug, a cow (over the moon, of course) . . . even a hippo can jump.

Kids and animals leap into the air in this sweet, simple book by beloved children's author-illustrator David McPhail. Cozy watercolor illustrations depict the very basic text, helping beginning readers predict unfamiliar words and decode the story. Uncluttered text keeps the same basic pattern on each spread, so new readers can focus on one changing word at a time.

The award-winning I Like to Read® series focuses on guided reading levels A through G, based upon Fountas and Pinnell standards. Acclaimed author-illustrators--including winners of Caldecott, Theodor Seuss Geisel, and Coretta Scott King honors--create original, high-quality illustrations that support comprehension of simple text and are fun for kids to read again and again with their parents, teachers or on their own!

Level A books, for early kindergarten, have one short sentence that repeats on every page with only one word change per spread. Images help tell the story--leading to faster decoding of sight words. This proven method starts the earliest readers on the path to reading fluency. When Level A is mastered, follow up with Level B.
