Back of Book:
All sorts of people ride roller coasters, people over a certain height that is. Marla Frazee zooms in on one pony-tailed girl who has never experienced a roller coaster before, ever, in this start-to-finish ride.
Tis is an incredibly well written story that perfectly describes the experience of riding a roller coaster. The story follows a little girl as she rides a roller coaster for the very first time. The text is simple but rich in adjectives. The illustrations show readers what a ride on a roller coaster looks like. This book is a perfect mentor text to use to introduce narrative writing. It can also be used to introduce story sequence.
