A little boy explains to Mama Slug how to teach Little Slug to read. Here are a few of his reading rules: Attach labels to Little Slug's favorite things; Read out loud to him; Point out words that repeat; Sound out words; Make a vocabulary list; Be patient And, of course, it helps if Little Slug can see the book, so prop it up and set him on a rock David Slonim's hilarious acrylic and charcoal illustrations and Susan Pearson's witty text show that reading can be fun.
