Dear Dragon feels rejected when a new baby arrives. Love and reassurance put him at ease as he finds new ways to help with the new addition to the family.

Using high frequency words and repetition, readers gain confidence while enjoying every day experiences with a boy and his imaginary pet dragon. Educator resources include reading reinforcement activities and a word list in the back. Activities focus on foundational, language and reading skills. Sections include: phonological awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and reading comprehension. Teachers' notes available on publisher's website.
