About the Book
The Dan and Sam Reader is a carefully constructed series of 60 illustrated short stories that make reading easy and fun for children, especially those who are still learning to read. The stories begin using a few basic words in repetitive sentences and slowly build to more naturally worded text.
The stories introduce the world to Dan and Sam, two best friends growing up in search of everyday adventure, food, and fun. They play football. They eat. They go fishing. They eat. Sometimes they just sit around … and eat.
Their biggest problems include the wrath of Kim, the mean neighborhood girl, and of course, running out of food. In the end, they make peace with Kim and solve a mystery so their good times can roll on.
