Fall Reading 2015 Hey Jack!: The Bumpy Ride

Jack is so excited to go horseback riding. He imagines that he will have a fine looking horse and be a real cowboy. But when the class gets to the stables, Jack is given a sweet-natured pony named Betty. He is so sad about getting a slow and steady pony that the ride loses most of its fun for him. But then he finds out that Betty is a really great mount to help out his friend Billie when she needs a rescue. Maybe a cowboy doesn't need the biggest or fastest horse after all.

Do you have any children or students who enjoy hearing stories about Junie B. Jones or Ready, Freddy read aloud to them, but they are not quite ready to read a chapter book of that length on their own? Then Billie B. Brown and Hey Jack! are perfect for them! The same sort of real life situations and humor, but in a shorter format with more illustrations. These books are great for beginning chapter book readers. Don't worry that the boys won't like them, because Billie's friend Jack is in Billie's stories and has his own series, too.

I won a copy of the book in a giveaway by the publisher and can't wait to introduce it to my students.
