ABOUT THIS BOOK

This funny and kid-appealing Step 2 early reader is about one small but brave little dog! Peanut has a super sniffer. When the toddler in his family wanders off in the grocery store, Peanut’s sniffing skills pay off and make him a big hero. A very relatable story in an easy-to-read format with bright illustrations from Mike Reed.

Step 2 Readers use basic vocabulary and short sentences to tell simple stories, for children who recognize familiar words and can sound out new words with help. Rhyme and rhythmic text paired with picture clues help children decode the story.
