DescriptionPeter’s Dream Start-to-Read UnderCover Book
Discover what’s under the cover! This learn-to-read adventure is packed with surprises. Every child loves story time. With School Zone’s exciting UnderCover format, kids can hear a story and follow along, read a story, sing songs, or play a game.
In Peter’s Dream, a common childhood fantasy comes to life. Your pint-sized pirate will sail off to dreamland with a treasure chest of fun. “Peter has a new boat. Now he can sail the seas. He can sail to far-off lands where he has no one to please.” And no rules! This sensory-rich, self-directed learning experience is the ideal solution for “read to me!” and “let me do it myself” moments. Kids can combine music and narration, hear one or the other, or turn both off. Highlighted words help them follow along. Intended as a next step after Level 1 introduction to reading, this Level 2 storybook from the Start to Read! series features controlled vocabulary, simple sentence patterns, and rhyming words. Plus, it’s packed with charming surprises. Find a musical teddy bear and tap it to play one of two fun songs, Mamane and Divin’ Down, and sing along with the onscreen lyrics. Tap the sparkling sailboat, and it launches a story-themed game that tracks scores for the player Hall of Fame. All done playing? Return to the story where it left off!
