Overview

This Level 2 book is perfect for children who are beginning to read alone.

It's the day of the big performance at Laura's ballet school. Suddenly disaster strikes! Can Laura help save the show? Longer sentences and an expanded vocabulary make this series of 48-page books slightly more challenging: Level 2 is appropriate for children who have started to read but still need help. Information boxes full of background information will stimulate inquisitive minds. These books contain between 700 and 850 words, and they are approximately 70 percent pictures and 30 percent text.

The Dorling Kindersley Readers combine an enticing visual layout with high-interest, easy-to-read stories to captivate and delight young bookworms who are just getting started. Written by leading children's authors and compiled in consultation with literacy experts, these engaging books build reader confidence along with a lifelong appreciation for nonfiction, classic stories, and biographies. There is a DK Reader to interest every child at every level, from preschool to grade 4.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2-3-Posed color photographs on a white background illustrate the story of a child's first ballet show. After rehearsing for the part of a rabbit, Laura is asked to fill in for an injured student and ends up dancing a main role. The text is primarily a vehicle to illustrate dance terminology, and words are defined in boxes sprinkled throughout. A two-page spread illustrates the different foot positions and one page shows six steps. Although this colorful, attractive volume will be picked up by young dancers, it is not an engaging reading experience.- Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
