Richard Scarry's take on the classic adage "the early bird catches the worm" is delightfully realized in this Step 2 reader, out of print for 10 years. 

Early Bird looks and looks, but he can't seem to find a worm to play with. A jumping frog and a tiny field mouse try to help out, but there just aren't any worms to be found. Early Bird is about to give up when he meets a friendly fellow in a funny hat—it's Lowly Worm!  

Step 2 (Reading with Help) is for children who recognize familiar words and sound out new words with aural and visual cues. Step 2 titles have simple stories, basic vocabulary, and short sentences.
