This is post one of two for the Holiday House Fall books. I love Holiday House because there is something for everyone!  This post will focus on the I Like to Read books and Guided Reading Level books.  Watch for other posts within the next week that will focus on picture books and a chapter books.  These books are all 5 star reads and books I seriously loved!!




I Like to Read® Books:


NOTE:  About the Series

I Like to Read® books are picture books written and illustrated so that even the newest reader can enjoy a satisfying, quality literary experience. The books in the series are written at kindergarten and early first grade reading levels.

"These books deftly combine text and art to create a positive experience for new readers."—School Library Journal

"This series dares to make entertaining reads from short texts and familiar vocabulary"—Kirkus Reviews

"Each one makes the hard world of learning to read enough fun to encourage children at this critical developmental moment to try another one."—Vicky Smith, Children's and YA Editor at Kirkus Reviews



Who would think that twelve simple words could create such a wonderful story? UP captures your imagination through the the gorgeous illustrations and simple text as a young boy is taken to the sky by a magic pinwheel. It is such a delightful and wondrous adventure in the sky, that is sure to entertain children and kids alike.



Oh my goodness gracious...BIG CAT is too cute for words. For anyone who loves cats, this book is a must! It is hilarious! The little girl in this story does all sorts of "fun" stuff with Big Cat and the looks on Big Cat's face is priceless. This is one of those books that the pictures would have to be spot to really capture the stories tone and the pictures perfectly illustrate Big Cats personality! The reader can see what Big Cat is feeling and thinking so this is a great book to teach your child to infer about feeling both of the little girl and Big Cat. Also, since it is told simply your early reader will love reading it to you! I have read this book over and over and still smile each and every time! Wonderful, just wonderful. 5 stars. I also cannot wait to sue this book in my classes!!!



I love that this book has simple words, but a funny and larger than life story. Children will love reading all the action words as the animals make lots of commotion and disturb pig's attempt to nap. It will end with a party and a funny and create way pig dealt with the problem.




A great book about learning to share and to be kind to others, and possibly a lesson about not taking things that don's belong to you. With easy word and colorful pictures kids will have success in reading at their "just right" level.




This book is really great because it has real photos that catch the readers attention. There is action when the hawk is introduced in the book and the squirrel uses its skills to stay safe. New and emerging readers will love the pictures and the easy text will allow them to read this book over and over again.



An outrageous story about a Zoo break. Sally tries to tell her family about all the animals in the yard, but instead of believing her they disregard her until a call comes in to alert them of the news. By that time, Sally has all the animals fed and happy in the yard. 4 stars


I love this early reader book.  The pictures are such fun to look at with all the incredible details.  It is a story about giving and making friends.  Another book I cannot wait to adapt into a classroom lesson.




Anyone who loved dogs will adore this book. It captures dogs perfectly. I loved the colorful illustrations and simple text. This books is sheer dog love. I know kids that are new to reading will get lost in pictures and will laugh at the story. Adorable.





This mouse it so cute making its way through the city and avoiding danger to provide a piece of pizza to his mouse babies. The pictures are so adorable, bright and colorful and filled with details. Kids will surly love looking at the pictures and will love being on the adventure with the adorable mouse dad.




This book is a perfect book to introduce the animals that live on the farm. With real pictures and adorable kids this book will be a huge hit in the classroom when we learn about the farm. This is one of those books that kids will love to look at over and over and over again because kids LOVE animals and the farm. 



This book is so cute. Kids and hugs go hand and hand. It captures the sheer joy of being a kids.
