Description

Franklin wants to play "Row, Row, Row Your Boat" on the piano, so he begins taking lessons. He learns the scales, but he would rather play baseball than practice. Will Franklin ever master the song? This Level 2 first reader contains longer stories, varied sentences, increased vocabulary, more difficult visual clues and some repetition.
