The first step in learning to read is a big one: from single letters to whole words. That's a lot to ask of young children. To make the transition to reading as simple and easy as possible, why not use the shortest words possible, at least in the very first books that children read? How short can words be and still make a story? Four letters, three letters? How about two letters? We Go To Bo uses words of no more than two letters to tell a very simple story, with characters, action, and humor, to help young children cross the threshold into the world of reading.
