No Fighting, No Biting! (I Can Read Book)by Maurice Sendak
Synopses & Reviews
The need for and popularity of books for first grade children to read themselves was proved conclusively by this author and artist's first collaboration—Little Bear. Children, librarians, teachers, parents, and reviewers were unanimous in their praises. A few of their comments appear on the back flap of this jacket.
Else Holmelund Minarik and Maurice Sendak have again combined their talents to make a book filled with laughter and adventure. Children will love to find out why Rosa and Willy are like two little alligators (and why Lightfoot and Quickfoot are like two little children!).
They will enjoy the delightful story, be enchanted by the joyous pictures, and be thrilled to have another book of which they can truly say, "I Can Read!"
Sometimes Rosa and Willy behave like the two little alligators in the stories Cousin Joan tells them.
About the Author
