All About Danny is an A leveled reader, Early Emergent category (Levels A-C). Level A titles are good choices for aspiring readers who are just beginning to understand books and the idea that written text conveys meaning.

Early Emergent Readers
Early Emergent readers benefit from books about familiar topics that use carefully controlled text and repeated vocabulary. Illustrations are important keys to readers at this level, supporting the decoding of new words. Early Emergent readers are still building a vocabulary of high-frequency words. Having a large vocabulary of frequently used words enables reading that is more fluent and sounds like natural speaking language.
