Editorial Reviews

About the Author

This book is as entertaining and educational as the author's other three Dolch sight word books. In this book and lesson plans which are on the website, she draws on the topic of her master's thesis to help children learn Dolch words. She did a similarities - differences training program with children in Project Head Start. Children who had her training had superior scores on reading readiness skills than children who did not have her training. Developing skillful recognition of similarities and differences creates a firm foundation for reading skills.

She has a BA in Psychology from Columbia College in Columbia, SC; an MS in Guidance from North Carolina State University in Raleigh, NC; and an Ed. S. in School Psychology from Georgia Southern University in Statesboro, GA. She is a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators.

Format: Paperback
This is the story about an appaloosa horse named, Albert. Upon opening Albert seems absolutely terrified of a group of kids who want to ride him, but his owner, Beth manages to calm him down.
The story also touches on a number of subjects and situations children face in today's society.
Author Betsy Lee, uses Dolch words in this small chapter book - helping develop word recognition, increasing the ability for children, as well as adults to read well.
All ages will enjoy this book, which is illustrated by color photos. Included are word search puzzles. For lesson plans visit the author's website.

Format: Paperback
After the basic three book series of A Funny Dolch Work Book, this humorous book is the next step in learning to read the basic Dolch words. It offers beginning readers, or children with reading deficiencies, practice in reading Dolch words with various common suffixes(endings) added to the words. It is a great way to expand a child's basic sight vocabulary to two syllable words. The entire book is devoted to delightful stories about horses. Since children are drawn to stories about animals, and in particular horses, this is a wonderful addition to a child's library. Achieve: A Visual Memory Program is a good program to use in conjunction with this Dolch book for syllabication development.

Format: Paperback
This is the fourth book in a series of Dolch books by Betsy B. Lee. All four are great. THis one has a collection of short funny horse stories. I guess the only non-Dolch work in the whole book is probably Albert and appaloosa. Big words like appaloosa and palomino don't bother kids especially if they love horses. Well the names of the people aren't Dolch words but they are easy names like Sarah and Linda. This book uses a lot of Dolch words with ed and s on them. Kids need to recognize these forms of the wrds too. Lee's other Dolch books are A Funny Dolch Word Book #1 and #2 and #3. All of these have a few word search puzzles as well. None of the words are backward or upside down.
I really like that. All four books are great!
