Eastman’s classic character Aaron the alligator makes his first easy reader appearance in this book. Aaron is a good sport with many hobbies and he likes to try new things. But somehow, he manages to find trouble no matter what he does.
Aaron the alligator is a fairy amusing character. He manages to find trouble just doing the simplest things. Throwing the ball results in a broken window, roller-skating results in falling down flat. The rhymes are fun, the character is engaging and I think he participates in activities that young readers can easily relate to. The text is repetitive and the font is large enough to make this age appropriate for beginning readers.
It has two wheels
He also rides a bike.
It also has
But what happens when Aaron tries to roller-skate? Too many wheels! Aaron falls down. The text is paired perfectly with the illustrations, which are simple and concise. For kids who’ve grown up with Aaron the alligator from picture books, this will be a great next step on their reading journey.
