Russ and Gus are bored . . . until they take a tub for a ride. This fun photographic easy-to-read story features the short "u" vowel sound. Kane Press's new series of super simple easy-to-reads, Bright Owl Books, launches with Molly Coxe's five photographic stories, which feature the short vowel sounds and are each only around 100 words. These irresistibly silly stories help kids learn to read through repetition and by teaching the basic building blocks of reading—vowel sounds—giving kids the perfect start on educational success.
