I Can Read Level 2

The Best Seat in Second Grade

illustrated by Abby Carter

About the Book

Sam has the best seat in second grade—right next to George Washington, the class pet!

Sam brings his hamster buddy on the class field trip to the science museum…but disaster strikes when George jumps from Sam’s pocket into the museum’s Hamster Habitat.

“Carter’s expressive watercolor illustrations help bring the kids in room 75 and their furry pet to life,” commented Kirkus.

This Level Two I Can Read is geared toward kids who read on their own but still need a little help.

“Wacky, off-kilter illustrations serve this humorous tale well.” —School Library Journal (for SLITHERY JAKE)
