The Positive Power early reader series introduces self-esteem and empathy to budding young readers. I Am Smart is a fun and encouraging story about making good choices. Now a part of the premier early reading line, Step into Reading!

When a young boy's teacher announces that there will be a science fair in a few weeks, he is worried. He doesn't like science. But by doing research, asking his friends for help instead of going out to play soccer, and not giving up, he learns that making smart choices leads to success. In this installment of the Positive Power series, kids will learn the affirmation "I am smart" through a relatable story of dedication and perseverence.

Through simple text and joyful illustrations, this installment in the Positive Power series inspires kids to make smart choices while giving them the confidence they need to transform from little to BIG readers.
 
Step 2 Readers use basic vocabulary and short sentences to tell simple stories, for children who recognize familiar words and can sound out new words with help. Rhyme and rhythmic text paired with picture clues help children decode the story.
