If you have a pet slug, it is time to teach it to read. How To Teach a Slug To Read Susan Pearson will give you six tips to make it easy.
1. You can attach labels to your slimy guy's favorite things like beans, corn, bugs, and carrots.
2. You can read to him out loud in books he loves like "A Tale of Two Termites" or "Mother Slug Rhymes."
3. You can point out words that repeat and invite him to read them with you.
4. Show your slug how to sound out words.
5. Make a new vocabulary list.
6. Be patient with your little slug.
And there are more!

The illustrations by David Slonim are hysterical and will keep the kids laughing.

You will also love a companion book, Slugs in Love, a funny, sweet love story set in a country garden. (Remember a literate slug will make the best husband or wife.)
