Reading with Animals

Reading with Animal Mini-Books

By Celeste Meiergerd

Help new and struggling readers practice reading and writing stories with these interactive, animal-themed mini-books, now with perforated, easy-tear pages.


Make reading fun for preschoolers, kindergarteners, and first graders with these write-it-yourself stories. Designed to be torn-out, folded, and stapled together (with the help of a parent or teacher), these projects let kids create their own customizable mini-books that build all the skills they need, including:


  • Writing practice with fill-in the blanks
  • Reading comprehension
  • Rhyming word families
  • Play-motivated learning


Including ready-to-photocopy pages and advice for use at home and in the classroom, this book is a great resource for teachers, homeschoolers, or parents of learners who will benefit from more reading and writing practice.
