Termite Tales


Brand New Readers: Termite Tales. Kathy Caple. 2009. Candlewick Press. 48 pages.

Termite Tales is one of many books in Candlewick's Brand New Readers series. It contains four stories starring Termite. Three of the four stories also star Termite's friend Ostrich. The stories included are Termite Helps, Termite Taps, Termite Measures, and Termite in the Canoe.

From Termite Helps:
Ostrich writes with a pencil.
Termite sharpens the pencil.
Ostrich writes with a pencil.
Termite sharpens the pencil.
Ostrich writes and writes.
Termite sharpens and sharpens...
Can you predict what happens next? I enjoyed this book. Yes, the stories are simple and predictable. But they are so much better than the early texts I remember learning to read with! Each story has a slight twist to it that adds some humor!
