This is a fun book about learning how to read. The pupil is a slug, so children can objectively watch the process and not feel pressured to be the student. And the illustrations are hilarious. We loved the classic stories and rhymes converted to slug-themed versions.
The steps are clear and as children and adults read this book together, the children will absorb more about how learning to read slowly progresses. I love that "Be patient" is repeated several times, as I know our girls have gotten frustrated with the process.
