Introducing My Very First I Can Read!—The Entry Point for New, Emergent Readers

To help kids discover the path to reading, we recently launched a new reading level: My Very First I Can Read!. This level features three box sets that guide children from Guided Reading Levels (GRL) 1 through G and, of course, a loveable character named Tug the Pup!

Each box set contains eleven lively stories, illustrations, reward stickers, and a parents’ guides’ booklet. The booklet provides hours of additional reading activities to support the skills taught in each story.
