Reader reviews

Big pig on a dig
I have a four year old son with Autism. We picked this book from his shelf one night at bedtime. He started reading it to me. I was so shocked but I found this book to be a great book for him to read. It is a great fun book for a first time reader. He is learning three letter words at school but he read almost all the words in this book by sounding them out. I would like to get the two titles listed on the back of the book. They sound fun also.
