I've never bought any of Arnold Lobel's I Can Read books and not loved it. (Especially Owl at Home - Tear Water Tea is such a perfect story.) Grasshopper on the Road is no exception. A collection of stories all centred on Grasshoppers daily walks. Wonderful stuff. For ages three to adult.
P.s. These are read-aloud books for us at the moment - but as you can see from the text above, they are ideal for novice readers.
