Danny enjoys spending time outside with nature, his friends and his family. In the title from our newest nonfiction series In My Yard, Danny explores his yard, discovering other animals who call it their home too.
My Yard is a B leveled reader, in the Early Emergent category (Levels A-C). It is an appropriate reading book for children who are beginning readers, or for those who are struggling or reluctant to read.
Early Emergent readers benefit from books about familiar topics that use carefully controlled text and repeated vocabulary. Pictures are important keys to readers at this level, supporting the decoding of new words. Early Emergent readers are still building a vocabulary of frequently used words. Having a large vocabulary of frequently used words enables reading that is more fluent and sounds like natural speaking language. We offer many fiction and nonfiction/informational leveled readers, suggested and used by Reading Recovery® and Guided Reading educators, when teaching Early Emergent readers.
