Now I’m Reading!™ – Beginner Reading Series

The Now I'm Reading Series

For Ages 3-7 $16.99

Each book includes 10 individual storybooks, 40 incentive stickers, and a Parent/Teacher Guide.

What the Now I’m Reading!™ books offer:

A phonics approach to reading: Phonics is the use of letter sound relationships to help youngsters identify written words. The major purpose of learning phonics is to know how to translate a word’s written form to its spoken form. The phonics approach helps children expand their vocabularies, which strengthens their reading comprehension.

A whole-language approach: Each separate book offers a complete plot line, with a beginning, a middle, and an end, which helps develop a child’s understanding of “story”. The humorous text and lovable characters encourage your child to retell the story in his or her own words. Reading aloud to your child is also recommended, and will help foster a love of language.

Ten engaging stories in each book: Stories about animals or high-interest topics, which allow kids to practice key skills while developing a love of reading.

Simple, repetitive text that uses the same words throughout a given story to provide the reading practice and the self-confidence your child needs to become a successful reader.

A building-block pattern, in which each story begins with a few words and progresses, a word or two at a time, to phrases, then to short sentences, and finally to longer sentences towards the end of each book.

An appropriate, organized sequence of skills, including consonants, short vowels, consonant blends, consonant digraphs, long vowels, long and short vowels together, word endings, and sight words. You will find the particular skills, blends, endings and sight words contained in the story listed on the inside back cover of that book.

Colorful, fun-filled, detailed illustrations.
