  • Episode Description
  • Ready, Set, Read!: Little Bill decides he wants to learn to read after watching Bobby enjoy reading a joke book. At school, he asks Miss Murray for assistance, so she devises a word game of looking up things in the room that start with the same letter and writing the words on the board so the children can see how they're spelled. During story time, Miss Murray talks Bill through reading one of his favorite stories, Harry the Helpful Horse; Little Bill recognizes some of the words thanks to the game they played earlier. When he gets home, Little Bill shows Bobby how well he can read the story, and Bobby offers to help him learn the jokes in his book. I Got A Letter: When Little Bill helps Big Bill bring in the mail one afternoon, he asks how people get mail addressed to them. His father points out that in most cases, if you write a letter, you receive letters, so Little Bill chooses to write a letter to one of his friends. He draws a picture for Andrew, and Big Bill helps him address the envelope. A few days later, Andrew comes to school very excited and shows the class the letter Bill wrote. All the other children ask Miss Murray to teach them how to write letters, too. The next time Bill helps his father bring in the mail, Big Bill points out that Little Bill received letters from Kiku, Andrew and Fuschia. Little Bill decides to write his friends right back.moreless

    • Monty is shown to be a member of Little Bill's class, even though the episode "Monty Joins The Class" airs after this one.
