More About This Book

Overview

Before there were people, dinosaurs roamed our planet. Some were huge, but most were quite small. Meat-eaters attacked with teeth and claws; others defended themselves with horns, spikes, and tails.

Top Readers is a series of beautifully designed, fact-filled books, richly illustrated with a wealth of accurate, full-color illustrations, intriguing diagrams, cross sections, and cutaways. All text has been carefully leveled to support children’s reading development. This is the ideal reading series to help beginner readers gain confidence while they practice their reading skills enthusiastically.

Stage One: Ready to Read

These books are designed for children who are beginning to read. They feature a single, familiar topic and concept, simple labels, strong word-picture match, and consistent placement of text.

Stage Two: I Can Read!

These books are for children who recognize familiar words with ease, and are developing a range of word attack skills. There are varied, simple sentence patterns, many familiar objects and actions, and illustrations that provide moderate to high support. Some specialized vocabulary is introduced in this stage.

Stage Three: Reading By Myself

These books are for children who are reading independently and require only moderate assistance when challenged by vocabulary, concept, or content. The sentences are longer and more varied, as is the vocabulary. There continues to be illustrative support and a greater use of access features such as diagrams, captions, glossary and index.

Stage Four: Reading With Ease

These books are designed for increasingly proficient readers who are reading with confidence. Vocabulary is more challenging and specialized, illustrations provide less support, and more complex diagrams, maps and charts are used. The concepts become more abstract and technical. These are the perfect introduction to reference books.
