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.
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 vocabulary, 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.
Ten removable storybooks
Forty incentive stickers
Enhancement activities at the end of each book
A magnetic closure
