Pairing the Read and Discover books with Dear Dragon titles focusing on the same concept allows you to incorporate “Twin Texts” to support the balance of reading nonfiction and fiction which is an integral goal of the Common Core State Standards. Research cites that twin texts help encourage the enjoyment of reading while capitalizing on students’ fascination with facts. Educators can begin by reading the nonfiction book to build background, which helps support comprehension of the related fiction. Alternately, starting with the fiction, you can spark your child’s interest and expand his or her knowledge of the topic with the nonfiction text. Educators’ Resources and Correlations to the CCSS are available on our website.

Books in the Character Education set include: Getting Ready for Bed, Helping Others, Playing Together, Saving Money (Read and Discover series) It’s Bedtime, Dear Dragon; Dear Dragon Helps Out; Play, Play, Play, Dear Dragon; Dear Dragon Goes to the Bank (Dear Dragon series)
