Children's LiteratureAt some point in his or her life, every person who is literate has gone through the process of learning to read. This book is designed for children who are still working at that process, but have progressed to a longer story with paragraphs and chapters. Ironically, the story is about a dinosaur named T who is just learning to read. The book illustrates the learning process as T learned the word, "Fat" and subsequently how he learned to read many more books. This book is a "Scholastic Reader" Level Three book, which means that it is still filled with pictures to illustrate the story, but the text blocks are larger with longer words and sentences. The end of the book has a fluency drill, to teach children to quickly recognize the words without reading them in a story context. This is to help with word recognition and reading comprehension. This series is designed to get children interested in reading and to teach them that they can read by themselves. 2004, Cartwheel Books/Scholastic Inc, Ages 5 to 7.
