From Pictures to Words - a guide to choosing books for beginner readers: Rhyme


General Field Mouse by Cora Harrison
Published by Mentor Press, 2002
ISBN 1-84210-147-1

Dragonfly Readers are a newly-published range of stories specifically aimed at young children aged between 5 and 7 years old. Carefully chosen language and vocabulary, accompanied by exciting illustrations, combine to make easy reads to be enjoyed by young children.

General Field Mouse is the bravest of all the field mice and so he is their leader. On a day when the cats come, no one will offer to help save the field mice but, like a true leader, General Field Mouse puts a clever plan into action.

Just two or three lines of text on pages containing striking illustrations are common characteristics of this and the other readers in the Dragonfly Series by Cora Harrison. Other titles include The Fed-Up Vacuum Cleaner, I Want a Dog and The Wizard of the Woods.
