The Pink Sneakers Caper is designed to engage a 5-8 year old’s mind and to stimulate his imagination. There is an immediate bond with the extremely colorful, meticulously drawn illustrations along with the light-hearted and entertaining storyline. To increase reading skill and confidence, each character’s name was chosen to help a child sound out the name phonetically. Your child can quickly comprehend the story but it also introduces new concepts and vocabulary. P.S. It’s a great book for pulling in the reluctant reader.
Intended to keep pace with both today’s quick, early learners and today’s rapidly advancing media, The Pink Sneakers Caper genre (early readers, easy-to-read, easy readers) is the perfect bridge between a picture book and a chapter book. Illustrations on each page help young readers decode the story by providing context clues. Reading together in a family reading time creates a connection and a common interest; it creates a sense of safety, nurturing, and love. Some expressions in The Pink Sneakers Caper have been incorporated to expand vocabulary as the book is read to younger children, instead of your child reading it on his/her own.
How the Story Emerged:
All his life, John Clark has written stories and entertained young and old with his colorful imagination. His three daughters, Sarah, Rebecca, and Katie who are grown now with children of their own, gave John yet more reason to develop the many children’s stories that spun around in his head. The Pink Sneakers Caper is one of the stories John wrote years ago to entertain his daughters. John and editor wife, Sandi, decided to publish the story for all families to enjoy in soft cover, Kindle, or iPad.
