Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
My Review: This one I think would be great for early readers.  I could read all the words and follow the story.  I loved the artwork and the story was cute!  I really think the extra stuff in the book would appeal to kids of all ages.  Even I had fun with it! This would be a must read for all first time readers! 



Praise for The Nocturnals Grow & Read Early Reader Series
"Beginning readers will enjoy this tale and will cheer on the threesome who defeat a bully by using their words.” —School Library Journal
“This banter-filled early reader describes the initial meeting between shy Tobin the pangolin, brash Bismark the sugar glider, and kindhearted Dawn the fox…the pared-down narration and dialogue quickly establish their personalities, as does Singleton’s cartoon artwork, which shows the characters striking expressive poses midconflict….Hecht and Dowling successfully set the stage for more adventurous outings down the road...” —Publishers Weekly
"This tale uses plenty of important vocabulary words, easily decipherable within context, while showing how friends who stick together can facedown even the meanest bully."—Booklist
“The series addresses bullying and empathy in an easy, accessible way, and the books are meant to be read aloud.”—New York Post
“A delightful read that teaches young children that differences are what makes us all special. Beautifully written with eye-catching illustrations that will entertain kids while teaching a valuable lesson.” —The Book Diva Reads
