Publisher Description:
Fly into fun with a determined girl engineer named Min who finds a clever way to join her big sister's games. This Level G book is perfect for young readers building their vocabulary and skills

Big Sister Ann and her friend Bess are playing school--and Min wants to join in. But Ann tells Min she's not ready for school. Here is the line. says Ann, You may not step over it.

Min doesn't give up so easily, though--she finds a rock and a board, some rope and a tube, and builds herself a catapult and rocket. Launching herself into the air and over the line, Min ends up in the middle of the playdate without stepping over the line.

Beginning readers will cheer underdog Min's triumphant landing in this easy-to-read book that celebrates ingenuity and perseverance. Detailed watercolor illustrations by Caldecott medalist Emily Arnold McCully showcase the budding engineer's brilliant plan. They'll all play rocket scientists instead

The award-winning I Like to Read(R) series focuses on guided reading levels A through G, based upon Fountas and Pinnell standards. Acclaimed author-illustrators--including winners of Caldecott, Theodor Seuss Geisel, and Coretta Scott King honors--create original, high quality illustrations that support comprehension of simple text and are fun for kids to read with parents, teachers, or on their own

For early-to-mid first grade readers, Level G books feature more complex storylines than prior levels, and a wider variety of structure and punctuation. Illustrations offer support for decoding the more challenging vocabulary words introduced.
