Addison's Abrupt Adventures
by Laura James
Addison is an average, agile, occasionally awkward girl, who enjoys art, archery, and astrology, but has difficulty with arithmetic. Abigail admires her aunt, deals with her allergy, and always rescues her annoying little brother, Albert. From all of Addison's animals, to Alberts many accidents, it is an amusing story.
Addison's Abrupt Adventures was written with an unusual twist, highlighting the letter A, and occasionally creating fun tongue twisters.
This style of writing strengthens vocabulary skills, and introduces new words, while still providing an entertaining tale.
This book was a nice challenge for my son who is in 1st grade. He does read young chapter books but they typically have images on every page. I liked that the letter A is written throughout. We read it once and then I re-read it slowly and you really pick up on how many “A” words there are. It makes it more fun for my son to, as he kept pointing out all of them. His favorite page was when Albert was hanging from the tree about to fall into the alligator cage. If your kid is moving closer toward books with more words and less images, I think this is a great book for that transition.
