Dixie Wins The Race (I Can Read, Level 1)

Summary:

Emma is in a relay race, and Dixie is there to cheer her on. It is hard for Dixie to sit still when the girls run by with the stick! Dixie cheers for Emma - so loudly that Emma falls and drops the baton. Oh, no! Who will finish the race?


Reader Enjoyment Factors:

Young readers will cheer for Emma and Dixie in this beginning reader.

Content Awareness Factors:

Although a small point, it bugged me that Dixie won the race. In reality, the team would be disqualified. You don't need to end on a down note, but you don't need to be unrealistic, either.


Parent Reaction

This is a cute story, and the first time you read it, you get as antsy as Dixie. The author does a great job building the story with action and a bit of suspense, yet repeating sight words consistently enough to help readers keep going.

Type of Book:
This is an early reader about the friendship between a girl and her dog.
Educational Themes:
