Nick and Nack Float a Boat
This innovative Level 1 Highlights Puzzle Reader incorporates our famous Hidden Pictures puzzles into the story! The combination boosts reading confidence, encourages re-reading and provides extra opportunities for vocabulary enrichment.
After Nick and Nack discover that some items float in the kitchen sink, they decide to make boats to play with. Since Nick loves to make things and Nack loves to find things, they combine their talents to craft a sailboat from foam and paper sails. As kids read, they can help Nack look for useful items in the Hidden Pictures scenes that double as illustrations for the story. Then they can follow directions to make their own floating fun! It’s a great hands-on activity that inspires creativity, supports fine motor skills and nurtures self-esteem.
Level 1 books are for kids who are learning to sound out letters and familiar syllables, and who are starting to recognize simple sight words and to read with expression.
