Synopsis

The Shy Dragon and the White Knight by Ms Cynthia Rider

A story-based approach to phonics practice helping children to read with confidence. A rather untraditional traditional tale where dragons and knights don't want to fight. The Shy Dragon and the White Knight is for children in Year 1/Primary 2. The highly attractive illustrations by Barbara Vagnozzi include some expected elements of a traditional tale, while the text provides an original, humorous story told with rhyme. The particular phonic focus (ie, i-e, igh, y) is reinforced throughout the text. Each children's book includes notes on the inside back cover to support use in guided group reading sessions.
