Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Susan Borges
This lively, brightly illustrated easy reader is about a charming young boy and his endearing pet dragon. Together, the likeable boy and his friendly pet dragon enjoy a fun-filled day of playing soccer with friends, while learning about sportsmanship. Young readers will make strong connections to their own experiences of driving to the field, wearing colored uniforms, heading the ball, and running down the field to score. Eye-catching, whimsical 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. All of these elements support independent reading, fluency, and comprehension for young readers. This updated library version includes a word list that can be used to practice reading the words that appear in the text. In addition, there are suggestions for reading reinforcement activities that can be used with a parent, caretaker, or teacher to strengthen beginning reading skills and help make the reading experience enjoyable and fun. Young readers will enjoy this simple story that mixes fantasy and realism because it captures the imagination while offering a sense of the familiar. Children who are learning to read will treasure this book as a read aloud or a book that they can easily learn to read independently. The other books in the "Dear Dragon" series will also be enjoyed by young readers who are captivated by the antics of this endearing young boy and his adorable pet dragon. Reviewer: Susan Borges
