Series: A Rookie Reader
by Pam Miller Illustrated by Bob Ostrom

All Rookie Readers actively engage young readers, encouraging language development, building fluency, and promoting independent reading. By targeting a skill, like learning about rhymes, young readers are building fundamental reading skills with the help of fun, lively, colorfully illustrated stories.

Wrinkles are everywhere — on freshly washed clothes, on a funny-looking dog, even on some people's faces. Learn about the wrinkles you can get rid of and those that are here to stay!
