Join Buster the very shy dog as he discovers his self-worth and self-confidence in a house full of more outgoing canine and feline characters. Newly formatted for Green Light Readers Level 3, this edition of Busterand#160;features two easy-to-read stories from the original book. In the first, a wary Buster reaches out to befriend a girl who seems sad and lonely at a birthday party. In the second, Buster, insecure about his inability to catch a ball, uncovers a winning talent all his own!

Synopsis:

Young Joe the Frog does all he can to avoid bed time in this amusing Level 1 Green Light Reader that's perfect for beginning  readers...and their bleary-eyed babysitters and parents. 

Synopsis:

Buster is not a small dog, but he feels like a small dog. He feels small at crowded birthday parties. He feels small when he tries to catch balls or chase wild animals. He especially feels small next to Phoebe, a bold dog who is an ace ballcatcher, popular at parties, and seemingly unafraid of anything. In these three stories Buster discovers his self-worth and self-confidence and makes friends along the way. Beginning readers will relate to Buster's fears and his successes and will relish in their very own triumph of completing a chapter book.

Synopsis:

"This froggy folly makes the grade."
              --School Library Journal
 
Not even his babysitter's most strenuous efforts can convince lively Joe the Frog to put on his pajamas and go to bed. But maybe if she figures out the magic words, he will finally hop under the covers and stay put!  Easy words, rhyming fun, picture clues, and short sentences practically guarantee early reading success for the Level 1 set. There are now four Green Light Readers about Joe the Frog. Collect them all!
