On the day of the race, Nate is running late. Find out what happens when he tries out going fast in this Guided Reading Level D story.
Nate likes to go slow. His brother and sister are worried they'll miss the race—but mom tells them not to nag him. When they get there, Mom convinces Nate to try, too. . . . And Nate finds out sometimes he likes to go slow, but sometimes he likes to go fast!
With colorful, kid-friendly illustrations by Caldecott Honor artist Emily Arnold McCully, this simple story about the rewards of trying new things is perfect for emergent readers.
The award-winning I Like to Read® series focuses on guided reading levels A through G, based upon Fountas and Pinnell standards.  Acclaimed author-illustrators--including winners of Caldecott, Theodor Seuss Geisel, and Coretta Scott King honors—create original, high quality illustrations that support comprehension of simple text and are fun for kids to read with parents, teachers, or on their own!
Suitable for late kindergarten readers, Level D books  feature wider vocabulary, longer sentences, and greater variety in sentence structure than levels A, B, and C.  When Level D is mastered, follow up with Level E.
