Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Susan Borges
This lively whimsical story is about a boy and his pet dragon. The adorable green pet dragon follows the boy to school where they participate in classroom and playground activities together. Attractive colorful illustrations complement the simple, predictable text and provide additional details that enrich the story. This "Beginning To Read" book contains many high frequency words, repetitive text, and basic phonetic patterns, supporting fluency and comprehension. This updated library version includes features such as a word list, suggestions for teachers and caregivers, and activities to promote reading success. Young readers will enjoy this simple text about the antics of a boy and his pet dragon because it will capture the imagination and appeal to children who are learning to read simple text while enjoying imaginative stories.

Oh, Dear Dragon! I love Dear Dragon! This time he goes to school with his boy. He gets to help and spend a day at the school. They look at books, go to recess, and a few more. I love that the book only uses 75 words. I think it is fantastic that Reading Reinforcement activities are included. These activities help the child with phonics and phonemic awareness, fluency, and comprehension. Thank you Norwood House Press and NetGalley for a free copy of the book for an honest review!

Another great addition to the Dear Dragon books that are great to teach youngsters to read. They are similar to the books I learned to read with, but seriously updated. The illustrations are fresh and when I read this with my grandson, he loved talking about the pictures and using them as clues for the words. In this book the boy and his dragon celebrate head off to school. Dragon is told to wait outside, but he comes in anyway. The teacher lets him stay and participate in activities. At recess he helps the boy and his friends play, then at the end of the day they head home for a snack with dad. A very simple story with repetitive words for our new readers. The whole story is told with just 75 words. I love the extra activities at the back for teachers and parents such as word lists, phonological awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and reading comprehension activities. A great book for primary classrooms and family libraries. The publisher generously provided me with a copy of this book via Netgalley.
