11 Dec It’s Monday! Dogs + High Jinks = Highly Engaging Texts #IMWAYR
In our bookrooms and classroom libraries, we want to make sure we have a wide range of series so readers can find characters they love. When we organize books by series, it makes it easy for readers to know what to read next. Instead of searching through lots of baskets, readers know just where to go to find more books about the same character. These dog series are so much fun! We love watching listening to readers’ giggle as they read these series and we love that readers with varying skill levels can read these texts.
Pioneer Valley’s Bella and Rosie series is one we love to share with early and emergent readers. These books are written at a variety of text complexity levels and are filled with real photos of these two adorable dogs. These books feature Bella and Rosie celebrating holidays, playing sports, and even trying on different costumes. The text is easy-to-read, the picture supports are clear and the stories are always engaging. These books are perfect for beginning readers to learn to use how to integrate print and meaning strategies to problem solve as they read.
Who doesn’t love this adorable dog? This series by Mary Ruth Books is so clever. It features Danny, a yellow Labrador retriever, as a spy, a superhero, and even an entomologist. The text in these books is carefully crafted to support early and emergent readers and the photographs are hysterical. We love that these books are written at a variety of text complexity levels making them accessible to lots of readers.
