I would use this book in a kindergarten or 1st grade classroom. This book is a Hello Reader book, with a reading level of 1. This means it is appropriate for kindergarten and first grade students. This book has been designed for parents to read to children, for children to read to parents, and for children to read to themselves. I can see this book helping students of this age group read better because its full of easy, rhyming sight words. I would definitely use this book for rhymes, independent reading, and for incorporating it into a health, literacy, or math lesson. I say math lesson because there is counting involved in this book. Overall, a fun read!
