Chapter Books-My Father's Dragon by Ruth Stiles Gannett
Chapter books, even for children as young as four and five, offer an alternate perspective to working with stories. Unlike the traditional picture books early childhood educators read, these types of books provide a richer context for exploring written text. Chapter books require attentiveness as the children learn to identify the characters in the story, follow the plot, and identify the settings. Over the course of the school year the children become familiar with a variety of literary terms.
