I Am Fungie the Dolphin (Animal Planet All-Star Readers Level 2)
Dolphins usually live and interact with other dolphins, but since 1983, one dolphin—affectionately named Fungie by locals—has been living by himself in a harbor in the town of Dingle, Ireland. What has drawn Fungie to this place, where he often chooses to playfully interact with people? Fungie’s life story is told from his point of view in Animal Planet All Star Readers: I Am Fungie the Dolphin, a Level 2 reader full of photographs and including a glossary. Dolphin-loving kids will eagerly plunge into this unique story that will also help them build their literacy skills.
Now this is the way I would like to practice my reading. These leveled readers are actually six separate books (each about 30 pgs long) combined into one volume. Several things set them apart. The content is all non-fiction, interesting and in-depth information from real world categories like outer space, insects, safari animals, and world wonders. Each section (i.e. book within the book) provides detailed information, glorious pictures, and intriguing content such as the food chain segment in the predators section of the Level 4 Endless Explorations book or the section on baby reptiles in the Level 1 Early Adventures book. But that's not all! There is a glossary and quiz at the end of each of these sections along with a set of six info cards that are perforated for easy removal (36 cards per book). Books have around 200 pages, and all are hc except for Level 3 which is pb. ~ Janice
