    Reading Comprehension Lessons for Voices in the Park
    Title: Voices in the Park
    Author & Illustrator: Anthony Browne
    Grade Level: Second Grade

    Summary: Voices in the Park is a very unique book. The book is broken into four parts because the story is told by four different voices. Each character is an ape who spends the afternoon at the park. The first character is a bossy woman. The second character is a lonely little boy. The third character is a tired man who is looking for work. The fourth character is an energetic little girl. Each character sees the world in a completely different way and their perspective has a lot to do with how much fun they have at the park. While reading this book, it is very important to pay close attention to the illustrations. Each of the illustrations has a lot of hidden pictures that will help you to infer more about what the characters are feeling and thinking.
