Hi, Jack Series by Mac Barnett and Greg Pizzoli

It is SO HARD to find easy readers that my son can read and wants to read. Thank goodness for Mac Barnett and Greg Pizzoli’s comical new easy reader series!

Hi, Jack begins like so many other easy readers, but takes a drastic turn when an adorable bunny, Jack, gets into some serious mischief. I am a huge fan of off-beat humor and I literally woke my daughter up laughing out loud while reading these books with my son.

It is such a relief to find a new series that gets my son excited about reading! While Jack is certainly not the best role model, my son finds his antics absolutely hilarious and we are both hoping there will be more books in this funny new series.

With simple sentences, a low word count, words repeated throughout the story, engaging illustrations that provide pictorial clues, PLUS a plot that interests my reluctant reader, I can’t think of a better book to showcase for National Read a Book Day!
