Lucas fell, and now he lives with a disability. A Level G story about resilience that first graders can read on their own.
Lucas is a happy lion.
One day Lucas Falls.
Can Lucas be happy again?
When Lucas falls off a ladder, he hurts his spine and can't use his legs anymore. He can't stand on them and he can't walk on them. Through self-determination and with the love of friends and family, Lucas learns new ways to take care of himself and have fun.
With easy-to-read language and cheerful art, children can learn about physical disabilities while they grow their confidence as readers.
This book has been officially leveled by using the Fountas & Pinnell Text Level GradientTM leveling system.
For early-to-mid first grade readers, Level G books feature more complex storylines than prior levels, and a wider variety of structure and punctuation. Illustrations offer support for decoding the more challenging vocabulary words introduced.
The award-winning I Like to Read® series focuses on guided reading levels A through G, based upon Fountas and Pinnell standards. Acclaimed author-illustrators--including winners of Caldecott, Theodor Seuss Geisel, and Coretta Scott King honors—create original, high quality illustrations that support comprehension of simple text and are fun for kids to read with parents, teachers, or on their own!
