Children's Literature - Dianne Ochiltree
A title in the popular �Beginning to Read' series, this book re-tells the story of the Nutcracker ballet using simple sentence structure, a limited word list and word/phrase repetition�which makes the story �just right' for kids just starting off on the road to literacy. Beginning readers will enjoy the familiar holiday story while they practice reading high frequency words in context. The text is enhanced with imaginative color illustrations, delicate as a snowflake and sweet as a sugarplum, which provide many additional details that offer the opportunity to expand oral language and develop comprehension skills. Best of all, this classic text from master easy-read author Margaret Hillert is here presented in a revised and expanded library edition, which includes many new features such as a note to caregivers, parents, teachers, and librarians from literacy expert Shannon Cannon giving tips about how to use the text most effectively, a word list, and extension activities designed by Ms. Cannon to promote reading success.
