What better way to grab the attention of young readers than with a tale about a dragon? The immediate attraction of the subject and the fact that this is “A Beginning-to-Read Book” will make the book fly off of classroom and library shelves. The majority of the book’s sixty words are one-syllable, so reading success is a sure thing. The simple story of a new baby coming home and her sibling’s reaction is one that youngsters can identify with. They can also enjoy the simultaneous plot of having and needing an imaginary (dragon) friend. Detailed illustrations add to the ease of comprehension. Suggestions for parents about how to read the book with their child, including simply letting the child read known words, are offered at the front of the book.
