Two-Letter Word Limit for Kids' First Book
To Make It Easy for Children to Read Their First Book, a Story with Only One- and Two-Letter Words
By: The Bo Books
"Children's books are often peppered with long words like 'elephant' and 'xylophone',"
"Each story in the Bo Books has characters, action, and humor (I hope), and beautiful illustrations by Joanna Pasek. The goal is to make it easier for children to read their very first book on their own, and gain confidence so that they can read more at a younger age."
The 1-letter word book, "Y," is about a curious kid who keeps asking her dad "why?" about the things she sees in the park. Why is the sky blue? Why is the grass green? He doesn't know, but she gets him to open his eyes to the world. With only 1-letter "words," Joanna's illustrations do the heavy lifting of telling this story.
The 2-letter word book, "BO, GO UP!," starts with a couple of children playing with a ball and ends with a much larger ball, because the mom of one kid runs a hot air balloon company and gives them a free ride. To make it easy to read, it uses all capital letters to avoid possibly confusing children about when to use upper case or lower case.
In the 3-letter word book, "Egg Cat," one kid has a cat, and when her friends play with it, they think it's laid an egg.
