Spring Reading 2020 The Best Burp

Author Tracey Hecht has added another Nocturnals story for younger readers.

This time around Bismark is having a burping contest with a bat named Bink. When Dawn asks who is making all those big burps and the two contestants point at each other, it seems that they have both pointed at Tobin. Will the shy pangolin get over the embarrassment? And can Dawn convince them that having a burp-off is not the best way to behave? After all, having a burp so loud that it is mistaken for thunder is not very polite. 

The Nocturnals stories show that three very different friends can cooperate, face challenges, and have fun together. Dawn has the patience and wisdom of a leader. Tobin can be timid, but is kind and willing to take risks for the sake of his friends. Bismark is small but bold, and very dramatic. Back matter in each of the books includes facts about the various nocturnal animals, and there are also downloadable activities online at https://www.nocturnalsworld.com/.

This book is a Level 1 reader, like The Tasty Treat, perfect for youngsters just beginning to read on their own - and with a topic sure to tickle their funny bones.

For youngsters who love stories with animal characters, or those whose older siblings have read the Nocturnals chapter books, these leveled readers are the perfect way to enter the nighttime adventures of these charming friends.
