From Pictures to Words - a guide to choosing books for beginner readers: Rhyme


Katie’s Cake by Stephanie Dagg
Published by The O’Brien Press, 1999
ISBN 0-86278-617-7

With only one or two sentences, humourous drawings and an added challenge to spot the panda hidden in the story, O’Brien Panda books will attract and sustain the interest of young children.

The rainbow cake baked by Mum for Auntie Susan’s visit is just too much for Katie to resist despite Mum’s warnings. When she’s tried all the different coloured icing and then tried them all over again to see which one tastes best, she realises she’s down to the cake. What does Katie do next? Read about her unbelievable efforts to restore the icing on the cake.

This is the second “Katie” book by Stephanie Dagg, in the O’Brien Pandas series which is perfect for first readers who are beginning to make their own way through books.
