"I can read it all by myself" is the Beginner Books motto, and behind it is an understanding of how important it is for children to take pride and pleasure in their early reading. These books have been designed to appeal directly to children through the use of humour, rhyme and bright pictures that can be "read" even by the non-reading child. Some Beginner Books are simple stories, others are hilarious nonsense: both types have been designed to give children confidence and make them want to go on reading.
Gus the firefly learns to write words in the sky with his light and soon his tricks get him into trouble, but by the end of the story he has shown his friend Sam just how bright he can be.
