Explore the world with this Level B book, just right for first-time readers!
I see an ant. I see a snail. I see a butterfly.
Two brothers exploring the attic find a magnifying glass, and set out to see what they can see!
Out in the backyard, they get a close-up look at butterflies, bugs, and snails, and a nest full of eggs. . . . which is hatching into a nest of baby birds!
Joe Cepeda's high-energy artwork helps tell the story, with bright depictions of the everyday wonders the boys encounter. I See is a companion book to Joe Cepeda's other I Like to Read books, Up (a Guided Reading Level B book) and I Dig (Guided Reading Level C).---from the publisher
