Contains over 165 Sight Words
This picture book contains many sight words, representing over 70% of the book’s text. The repetitive phrase sprinkled throughout the book contains mostly all sight words. In fact, if you exclude the animal sounds, sight words comprise over 92% of the book’s text. My daughter was able to read this entire book with little assistance from us and it made her ecstatic! An added bonus is the book is written in two languages, English and Chinese, and even provides a song for your children to sing. Our local library recommended this book for children entering kindergarten or first grade to be read over the summer. Due to sight word content, Where Are You Going? To See My Friend receives four stars.
