Description

Knight and Horse follow their dreams . . . but will they find the treasure they're after?  Find out in this Guided Reading Level F Book.

Clank! Clank! Clip-Clop!  Knight and his faithful Horse are on a quest to find the golden cookies of Knight's dreams.  Far and wide they travel, trotting through the land in search of treats-- but the cookies are nowhere to be found. 

Finally they return home, where a surprise in the kitchen awaits to reward their valiant quest. 

With simple text featuring repetition and predictable patterns, this Knight's tale is ideal as a read aloud, or for emergent readers to tackle on their own.  Sketchy, energetic illustrations by Caldecott Honoree Betsy Lewin add humor and detail as Knight, who never takes off his signature armor, peers into trees and into bushes in search of his golden prize,.

The award-winning  I Like to Read® series focuses on guided reading levels A through G, based upon Fountas and Pinnell standards.  Acclaimed author-illustrators--including winners of Caldecott, Theodor Seuss Geisel, and Coretta Scott King honors—create original, high quality illustrations that support comprehension of simple text and are fun for kids to read with parents, teachers, or on their own!

For kids who've mastered the earlier levels, Level F readers feature longer, more varied sentences, and encourage kids to decode new multi-syllable words in addition to recognizing sight words.  Stories are more complex, and the illustrations provide support and additional detail.


Praise For Good Night, Knight (I Like to Read)

* "Knight and Horse follow their dreams—literally. . . . Clear text, amusing illustrations, and a captivating easy-to-read story make this a winner for horse-loving emerging readers."Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review
 
"Like the rest of the books in the series, the large format serves as a perfect transition from picture books to easy readers. . . . An appealing addition to the series and to any library collection."—School Library Journal
 
"Lewin's marker-and-watercolor artwork depicts the main story elements, leaving plenty of white space in the background. . . . The simple, often repeating text is well placed on the page, allowing beginning readers to easily predict unfamiliar words from the context and the art."—Booklist
 
"The use of repetitive phrases and homophones are geared toward new readers . . . The watercolor illustrations use a limited palette and a light touch."—The Horn Book Guide
