It’s the last day of school. Raymond and his friend Roxy are excited to spend their first day of summer vacation at Wild World Park. Raymond loves speed. He tries the Ponies, but they’re not fast enough. He tries the Wild Cat Racer, but it’s still not fast enough. Will Raymond find the perfect ride before the day is over? This Step 2 early reader captures the excitement and anticipation children experience at an amusement park. Twenty years after Ready? Set. Raymond! was published, Vaunda Nelson and Derek Anderson continue the adventures of Raymond and Roxy. Look for Ready? Set. Birthday! too.
