Children's Literature - Susan Borges
This lively, brightly illustrated easy reader is about a young boy and his pet dragon who take a fun-filled trip to the carnival with the boy's mom and dad. The book is designed to be enjoyed as a read aloud with an adult partner, and then used as a stepping stone to independent reading because it contains familiar words, repetitive phrases, and supportive picture clues. Young readers will make strong connections to their own experiences of anticipating and preparing for an exciting trip, riding on a merry-go-round, winning a prize at a carnival game, and enjoying a delicious candy apple. The eye catching whimsical illustrations of the beautifully colored carnival booths and brightly painted clown faces will engage young readers because they add wonderfully vivid details that enrich the story and make it very interesting and appealing to young children. At the end of this charming story there are suggested reading activities and a word list that can be used to foster maximum reading comprehension, enjoyment, and reading skill development. Children who enjoy this story about a sweet young boy and his adorable pet dragon will also enjoy the other titles in the new and updated "Dear Dragon" series, offering young readers the opportunity to expand their oral language and develop their reading comprehension skills while enjoying a wonderful heart-warming story.
