WHAT'S IN THE SKY, DEAR DRAGON is a cute little book at the beginning First Grade Reading level.

This title is a bilingual (English/Spanish) version of “What’s in the Sky, Dear Dragon”. It describes for young readers the many objects that can be in the sky at different times of the day. The simple text and format and unassuming illustrations are ideal for ELLs and special populations. Unfortunately, the handy Reading Reinforcement activities are solely in English and not helpful for Spanish-speaking parents or guardians. Order if needed.
