Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This recent Geisel Honor winner is a great book for kids learning to read or for any kids that like books about dogs. The words are simple sight words for new readers. The ending has a fun surprise. Young readers will enjoy this book, whether they read it to themselves or enjoy being read to!
This author is very special to our family since our (almost) 4 year old son has started reading. See Me Run was the first actual book that he could read! See Me Run and See Me Dig are perfect books for beginning readers! Paul Meisel is an exceptional author who knows how to write a good children's book. I would highly recommend his books. They have become part of our nightly routine.
