A famous chef is coming to school! Will Ollie figure out what to cook in time to share with the class and the special visitor?

Ollie is not the best at anything in second grade, but he does love to cook. When the famous Chef Antonia comes to visit, he can't wait! It's his chance to shine, if only he can settle on the right dish.

All young chefs will enjoy this story and relate to the kids in Room 75. Just as Ollie builds self-confidence, second graders will increase their reading success as they enjoy The Best Chef in Second Grade.

“The episode’s mouthwatering climax and resolution will guarantee smiles of contentment all around,” says Kirkus.

The Best Chef in Second Grade is a Level Two I Can Read book, geared for kids who read on their own but still need a little help. Whether shared at home or in a classroom, the engaging stories, longer sentences, and language play of Level Two books are proven to help kids take their next steps toward reading success.
