Look is a colorful, fun way to learn the double-o vowel pattern. One word appears boldly on each page with familiar round objects illustrating the o’s—wheels on a car, egg yolks in fried eggs, and the heads of two peach-colored children shouting, “Hooray!” Colorful digital illustrations using stencils and hand-cut rubber stamps provide clues to the words’ meaning. Perfect for beginning readers and their teachers to share.
