I Want That – Early Reader

I want that one children's storyI Want That One! is a fun early reader where an overly keen child keeps picking things from the bottom of the pile, it seems he won’t learn his lesson, until they come to a pile of puppies.

Lots of repetition and a nice geometry lesson included make this a great free story book for early readers.

This level 1 book was brought to you from Pratham’s Storyweaver platform.

Author: Mala Kumar
Illustrator: Soumya Menon
