Harper, 2014. 32 p. Beginning Reader
The transition from sounding out words to fluid reading is difficult. One way to motivate emerging readers to keep practicing is to give them books about characters they love. In this delightful early reader Pinkalicious has decided to throw a party for her unicorn, Goldilicious. Peter wants to help, so Pinkalicious puts him in charge of tasting the refreshments to make sure they are perfect. Peter takes his assignment seriously and adds some extra ingredients to the tea. Will the tea party be ruined? Girls, especially, will enjoy the cute and happy illustrations, done with a lot of pink and purple. Pinkalicious fans will welcome this latest addition.
