Intended as a next step after Level 1 introduction to reading, this Level 2 storybook from the Start to Read! series, features controlled vocabulary, simple sentence patterns, and rhyming words. In Peter’s Dream, a common childhood fantasy comes to life.
“Peter has a new boat. Now he can sail the seas. He can sail to far-off lands where he has no one to please.” His adventure takes him to a land where children make all the rules. The story introduces 50-70 new words, and many of them can be read by changing the initial sound or by rhyming with a known word. Picture clues provide considerable support for the text. All the elements add up to reading success! You may need to help your child sound out some words, then after several readings together, encourage him or her to read alone. This is just one selection in Dr. James Hoffman’s Start to Read! Early Reading Program, with storybooks across three progressive reading levels.
