Story Summary

Kenneth is such a poor reader, he spends every day all by himself in the reading corner. Then, one day he sees a new book with the title Kenneth's Purple Reader. Each day the words and stories get a little more difficult and always detail an event in Kenneth's life that hasn't happened yet! Drawn to the mystery of Kenneth's Purple Reader, Kenneth is soon reading on a par with his classmates.
