Synopsis

Feeding the Dragon by John Townsend

We're off to feed the dragon in this light and amusing text. We're off to Dragon Mountain! Feeding the Dragon is a book-banded reading book for developing readers, carefully levelled at Gold Book Band for guided reading. Beautifully illustrated throughout, this 742-word fiction story is suitable for ages 7 - 8. Feeding the Dragon features a longer, more demanding text with extended vocabulary and sentence structures. It has wider vocabulary and terminology and the story-line is sustained for longer. More than one point of view is expressed and illustrations no longer support the text. Feeding the Dragon is part of Ransom Reading Stars, a structured programme for children learning to read. The series has fifteen levels: four phonics levels and eleven book band levels (Pink through to Lime).
