One by one, the animals climb up to sit in their tree house. When Sid the Horse tries to join them, he is too heavy and the tree house falls with everyone in it. Sid is blamed for the mess, so he undertakes to repair the tree house. All the animals get back in the tree house with Sid solidly supporting them.
The story is read along so your child can listen to the text or read independently. This story is geared toward children grades P-3.
"Sid and the Mess" is the 18th book in the series of beginning readers from ReadingTeacher.com.
New Words in Book 18:
The 80 books in the series use systematic phonics to ensure that your beginning readers will get a great start in reading proficiency.
The books begin at a very simple level and gradually introduce new sounds and words until students have mastered all 44 phonemes (sounds) in the English language.
The books should be read in order, because the sounds and words in each book build upon those learned in previous books. It is important that students master each book before moving on to the next.
Each new word throughout the program is repeated at least 5 times in the book in which it first appears and 5 more times in the next 10 books.
