Puff the Magic Dragon remains a childhood landmark for budding readers (and singers), but did you know it also makes an excellent vocabulary study? By focusing on several in-text words (in this case: billow, cease, fearless, frolic, and gigantic), scholars gain reading comprehension and utilize context clues to understand these words better.
