Benjamin Bradley Benton

Benjamin Bradley Benton wonders why he has ten wiggly fingers and ten wiggly toes; why his nose turns red when he is sick or when it snows. In Benjamin’s world, curiosity rules. And in sharing his wonder, we learn more about ourselves, others, and our world.

This is more than just an adorable storybook–it’s a unique tool that teaches families how to use essential reading and math strategies at home. Embedded symbols prompt parents to know exactly when to incorporate strategies to support their child’s early learning. As an added benefit, families will use these strategies as a springboard to apply with any book read aloud at home since the strategies are not title specific.

  • Kindergarten Orientation
