This Classic Edition uses the distinctive illustrations from earlier printings of The Last Game, an entertaining story about a baseball game played to a dramatic tie.
The Start to Read! series helps children learn to read by presenting interesting stories with easy vocabularies. In this Level 3 selection words are repeated, and sentences are short. Rhyming words help children increase their vocabularies. Context clues in the illustrations are abundant.
Most of the vocabulary words in The Last Game are typically introduced in first grade and second grade. The words cheer, amazing, bounces, toward, knee, covering, skips, quickly, although, reaches, and score are higher-level words. You may need to help your child sound out these words. After several readings together, encourage your child to read alone. Praise your child’s efforts because, most of all, the reading experience should be enjoyable.
