Timberdoodle's review Learn more
You know that the amount of reading your child does will have a direct and positive impact on his reading fluency, but finding appropriate material for the budding reader is often a hit-or-miss endeavor.

Some beginning readers are painfully dry with insipid illustrations, not what a child dubious about the rewards of reading should have to encounter. But Innovative Kids has pulled together a series with you and your child in mind.

Each set includes ten captivatingly illustrated stories designed to tickle the funny bone of every child. Each zany story builds on the other as your child progresses from short-vowel and simple consonant sounds to long-vowel sounds and sight words. As your child completes each book, he receives a comical sticker to place on the inside cover; kids love that.

You get a parent's guide that offers helpful hints on how to use the books, including exceptional enrichment ideas to use at the completion of each book. What a fantastic way to further reinforce necessary reading skills and build reading success! Each of the following sets includes ten mini-books, a parent's guide, and forty stickers packaged in a nifty case for easy removal and storage.
  • Ten removable storybooks
  • Parent's guide
  • Forty incentive stickers
  • Enhancement activities at the end of each book
  • A magnetic closure

    Kids Love This Series December 29, 2013
    Reviewer: Sunflower S.  
    My kids love learning to read with this series. I love this series. Fun for the teacher and the student and learning to read without tears...can't beat that! A step by step approach to learning how to read that is also a logical progression.

    Great for focused reading August 13, 2013
    Reviewer: Homeschool Mum  
    My daughter loves reading but I found standard books caused her to become more interested in the story and pictures. These books allow us to have a more focused reading session together, where she needs to focus on the text more than the picture. The picture does provide visual prompts, but its a simple picture. If your after fun reading this might not be for you. However if you would like word level reading I would highly recommend these books. I have put the stickers as a pro and con. My daughter is sticker obsessed so at first she just wanted to rush through to get a sticker. I have now removed them and will present one when she reaches her next goal rather than her knowing about the sticker in advance.

    My daughter loves these books! August 3, 2012
    Reviewer: Brittany  
    This book is amazing! They are perfect for beginning readers! My daughter loves these! She likes to carry them around (they are perfect for that due to their size) and show everyone that she knows how to read! She gets these out everyday and reads them over and over! She likes to FaceTime my mom and read the to her as well! They're great right before bedtime, becaus ether aren't too long. Because of their protective covers, hate will last for a long time!

    a non-boring reader set! June 1, 2012
    Reviewer: mamakven  
    When my son was whining about practicing reading using his bob books for the umpteen million time, I remembered that I purchased Now I'm Reading!: Level 1 Animal Antics from Timberdoodle a while ago and tracked them down. WHAT a breath of fresh air! He not only enjoyed reading them but asked for another and another. I would highly recommend this, particularly if you have a "difficult" child who requires more than what most readers can offer.

    Spunky & fun! June 1, 2012
    Reviewer: HeatherMom2Five  
    I used these to fullfill our 20 minutes of reading out loud a day rule we have for everyone after they are reading. Our daughters had such good success with these fun little books and even after they could read them independently we used them to work on reading aloud in a natural conversational style. The stories are fun and the pictures are cute!
