Book Review: Paddington Sets Sail.

About the Book: Paddington’s first trip to the beach is a day to remember as he explores the sandy shore and is swept off on a grand adventure!

Michael Bond’s classic character will charm beginning readers with his curious nature and heartwarming intentions.

Paddington Sets Sail is a Level One I Can Read book, which means it’s perfect for children learning to sound out words and sentences.

My Review: Mr. Brown decided to take his family to the beach and Paddington was so excited as he has never been to the beach. He was so excited that he packed everything he had. As they got to the beach, Paddington was ready to splashed in the ocean and build the biggest castle to win the contest. He built the biggest sand castle. He saw that it was perfect and sat inside if it and fell asleep. And then the tide came in and knocked down his castle and carried him off out to sea. Will the Browns ever see Paddington again or will he be rescued?

The beginning reading 1 is the perfect book for young readers. The sentences are short, the words are familiar which makes it simple for them to read on their own.


FTC Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from HarperCollins in exchange for a fair and honest review. I was not monetarily compensated for my opinion in any way.
