Games, kites, a bike ride, and mac and cheese–it’s fun to spend a day with Dad. First-graders can read this Level G story on their own!

A day with Dad is a day packed with fun! Eating too many pancakes is just the beginning. Morning rain means it’s time for board games. When the sun comes back out, so do bikes and kites. Pup the dog tags along, too! Back home, the evening continues with mac and cheese, movies, and a phone call from Mom. Then Dad has one more surprise: PILLOW FIGHT!

Young readers can enjoy this simply-worded story independently, or cuddle up for some quality father-child time of their own.

For early-to-mid first grade readers, Level G books feature more complex storylines than prior levels, and a wider variety of structure and punctuation.  Illustrations offer support for decoding the more challenging vocabulary words introduced. 

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 with parents, teachers, or on their own!
