Editorial Reviews

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 zoo 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 observing zoo animals, petting farm animals at a petting zoo, and enjoying a snack at the gift shop. The eye catching whimsical illustrations of the beautifully colored plumage on the ostrich and the boldly striped tigers running in their cage will engage young readers because they add wonderful 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.

    Great early reader

    It keeps the child's interest. They learn to read because it's a fun book.
