This Makes Me Silly is a part of the Step into Reading Rodale Kids Curious Readers/Level 2 Dealing with Feelings Step into Reading®(Step 2) collections.

This Dealing with Feelings book about a trip to the zoo helps kids understand what they're feeling when they get a case of the giggles. Now a part of the premier early reading line, Step into Reading!

When a little girl visits the zoo with her family, she makes faces at the animals and gets a little silly. After she pounds on the glass, the tour guide has to warn her that loud noises can scare some animals. But with the help of her dad, she learns to recognize her feelings and calm down.

The Dealing with Feelings series of early readers is designed to give voice to what's brewing inside. Through short, simple text and repetitive observational phrases, children will learn to name their emotions as they learn to read.
 
Step 2 Readers use basic vocabulary and short sentences to tell simple stories, for children who recognize familiar words and can sound out new words with help. Rhyme and rhythmic text paired with picture clues help children decode the story.
