A simple but unpredictably-repetitive read for new readers of English. Most books for emergent readers of English are designed for a native-speaking emergent reader age group (3-6 years of age) and so can be poorly accepted by older learners of English who still need very simple language.
This book focuses on "there is/isn't", "wants/doesn't want to eat", "goes", "cries" and -- just for fun -- "throws up". There's lots of language to spark personalized discussion and interaction with students, as well as to prompt their own written output after they read it -- all by themselves.
