Children's Literature - Christine CasselloOn a snowy winter the boy with the pet dragon go out to play. They build a snow person, make snow angels and go sledding with friends. Then they build a wall of snow and have a snowball fight. After a day of fun in the snow they return home and have cookies. The boy asks his father to help him read a book about winter and sits on his lap while the father reads. A Christmas tree with decorations on it is in the illustration. The boy and his dragon put the book and all the toys he was playing with away before going to bed and dreaming about presents under the tree. The boy tells his dragon how good it is to be with him. All of the illustrations portray the story activities in beautiful color. Then, the back of the book contains a list of 72 words used throughout the story and Reading Reinforcement exercises, written by Shannon Cannon, that would be more fun than work.

It's Winter, Dear Dragon based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
The Dear Dragon series is made up of several books that are easy readers. They use site vocabulary that is printed in the back of the book. It reminds me of the books I learned to read with. This particular story is told using 72 sight words. In this book, it is winter and the boy and his dragon are doing the kind of things kids do in the winter. They make a snowman, a snowfort, go sledding and have a snowball fight, ending the day with cookies and hot chocolate. Before bed father reads him a book and they clean up their toys. Going to bed they are dreaming about Christmas. These Beginning-to-Read books capture the imaginations of beginning readers and help them on their way to independent reading. They could also be read aloud to young children who are not able to read yet. A great addition to a family library or a primary classroom. I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
