Emiline: Knight in Training
The book format is a graphic novel illustrated in a soft watercolor style in pastels. Emiline: Knight in Training is set in a magical place where knights ride mythical creatures and a few friends are training to be knights. Emiline, on her trusty unicorn Fluffkin.
Young readers who have struggled with reading will identify with Emiline. She learns how important it can be for a knight to know how to read--whether it is a book helping identify plants, being able to read inscriptions to unlock barred gates, or finding a safe place to shelter. With the help of a patient teacher, Emiline keeps trying and finds out she has more courage than she knows!
The young knights in training learn that working together and helping others are an important part of learning to be a good knight. A great lesson for young readers as well! This is a great book to encourage reluctant readers to be brave and tackle the things they most fear or struggle with.
