Children's Literature - Susan Borges
This attractive book about a popular subject will make reading fun for beginning readers. A young boy dreams of being the best player in every sport from baseball and soccer to dirt bike racing and fishing. The clever patterned text which includes a simple rhyme with each turn of the page, explains why the boy is not successful at each sport. For example, he hopes to be the best hockey player in the state, but he cannot skate! As the story progresses, young readers will sympathize with this spunky boy and they will also appreciate his growing frustration. Readers will learn that a positive attitude is best, and in the end, it is the attitude of this young sport's enthusiast that will make the readers smile. This delightful story can be enjoyed with or without an adult reading partner and with each reading, the beginning reader will develop more independence and fluency. As part of the Level 5 "We Read Phonics" series, this book includes wonderful recommendations for strategies that can be used by teachers and adult reading partners. These excellent strategies are designed to hasten reading development and solidify essential skill development for beginning readers such as competency reading words that include the long sound for /a/ such as sail and say and words that contain the long sound for /i/ such as light and try. Young Readers will enjoy this delightful story about sports, and they will be eager to read the other titles in this clever series of books because they are fun and accessible, creating enthusiasm for independent reading.
