Cat learns colors and meets new friends! This Level C book is perfect for kindergarteners to read on their own.

Cat likes red.
Red is nice.
Cat likes yellow.
Yellow is nice.

Cat meets a red ladybug. Turn the page: Cat and Cat's new friend are outdoors in an all-red scene, chock full of details. Cat meets more friends--including a green lizard, a blue fish, and a yellow bee.

Your new reader will build skills, gain confidence, and have fun too!

This book has been officially leveled by using the F & P Text Level Gradient(TM) Leveling System.

For readers who've mastered basic sight words, Level C books feature slightly longer sentences and a wider range of high-frequency words than Level B books. Level C books are suitable for mid-to-late kindergarten readers. When Level C is mastered, follow up with Level D.

I Like to Read: The award-winning I Like to Read series features guided reading levels A through G, based upon Fountas & 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 again and again with their parents, teachers or on their own!
