These Step Into Reading books are tricky. I mean, yes they are good for kids who are learning to read, but the stories in them often leave much to be desired.

This easy reader book features a dragon egg rolling away from it's cave and the adventure that ensues. A simple and easy to follow book for any age group.

This richly colored reader offers up the tale of a dragon's egg that rolls out of the nest, and the baby dragon's journey to find its mother. It is a simple story, as much told by the pictures as the words. The text is in a clean, easy to read font, a good size, and has limited and simplistic vocabulary. The illustrations are engaging without being too busy, and the color scheme could attract children of either gender.

This book has very cute illustrations and nice, bright colors. The story itself is fun - the egg rolls along and all these different people and animals start following. When it hatches the dragon chases them all back to where they came from.

Basic plot: A dragon egg rolls away from the nest, hatches, and the baby dragon flies to find its mother.

Extremely cute art, with lots of interesting subtleties to the pictures. This will provide lots of fuel for interacting with the text as my son grows older (I am SUCH an English teacher...). The repetition of the baby dragon's journey is really good for the toddler- and it teaches prepositions (English teacher again, sorry)! Other than that, every time I read it to my son he tries to "blow fi

I liked the repeatitive structure and writers choice for a level one reader. Also, the way the pictures tell most of the story fit for the level. Artwork was really nice, especially the colors of the dragons art the end.

Introduce concepts such as "out", "down", "through", "along", "past", "off", and "open" in this adorable beginning reader. It is just right for a toddler story time.

This is one of my son's favorite books. He can quote the whole thing. Great for beginning readers.

The cover is what drew me to it. The dragon was just too cute for me to pass over. The story itself was enjoyable. It's a short adventure of a baby dragon while away from its mother.
