Description

Meet Min--a girl with the brain power to make a machine and outwit a bully too! This Level F book is perfect for first-grade readers.

Ann and Bess don't want Min in their show. But when a tree falls on their outdoor stage, only Min can figure out how to move the tree. She gathers some logs, a chain, a rope, a pulley, and a hook and builds a crane. The show can go on--with Min in it, of course!

This is the third book to feature Min, the girl engineer in 3, 2, 1, Go! and Min Makes a Machine.

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!

Level F books, for early first graders, feature longer, more varied sentences than Level E. Level F books encourage kids to decode new multi-syllable words in addition to recognizing sight words. Stories are more complex, and illustrations provide support and additional detail. When Level F is mastered, follow up with Level G.


Praise For 1, 2, 3, Pull! (I Like to Read)

"Concise sentences that are perfect for beginning readers accompany McCully’s cartoonish pen, ink, and watercolor illustrations. The underlying STEM theme lends itself to a lesson about pulleys and problem solving. An appealing addition to this easy reader series, this is enjoyable as a stand-alone as well."—School Library Journal
