The 3rd Reading Series

Mr. Mugs - Peek In, Please

The third monthly reading series is Mr. Mugs - Peek In, Please by Martha Kambeitz, Denise Burns and Josephine Proctor.

Louis credits the Mr. Mugs books series with helping him to learn English at a very young age. The Mr. Mugs books have been out of print for many years but occasionally you can find them on eBay, Amazon Marketplace or various other antique book dealers.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
Mr. Mugs
is the title character in a series of children's books written by Martha Kambeitz and Carol Roth and published by Ginn and Company (now part of Prentice Hall). Mr. Mugs was an Old English Sheepdog who lived with two children, Pat and Cathy. These readers were used in Canadian elementary schools in the 1970s and early 1980s to teach reading. There were 3 different series (with seven levels within each series) of "Mr. Mugs" books: "Ginn Integrated Language Program"; "Light and Life Reading Series"; and "Sharing Points in Language Arts". While two titles were published in hardcover, the rest of the "Mr. Mugs" titles were published in softcover.

A Funny Boat
What a big one!
I like to ride on a big boat.

Grandpa, can the boat go fast?
I like fast rides!
Can we go for a ride
on the big boat, Grandpa?

We can't go on the big boat, Pat.
See this boat?
