When kids are learning to read, simple is good. And fun is even better!
That’s why the New Reader series works so well. These delightful books encourage kids to read through repetition, rhythm and, occasionally, rhyme. Kids love them because they can finally read their own stories.
You’re invited to try one of out iBooks for free.
Uncluttered illustrations (without hi-tech distraction) help potential readers focus on the words and the characters. The pictures and the words work together to tell a patterned story. Children feel comfortable “reading” the story because the words are simple and predictable.
The pictures offer plenty to talk and laugh about — colour, characters, number patterns, emotions, shapes and sizes.
Parents and primary teachers — including English-as-second-language and special-education professionals — have regularly used the print editions of these books to help kids learn to read for more than 10 years.
