Tick Tock Readers
What are we looking for in early readers? First, they must be based on phonics, the tools necessary to sound out words without guesswork. Beginning reading is hard work, so the storyline needs to be worth the effort. Finally, outstanding illustrations that engage a child are a lovely bonus.

Tick Tock Readers combine structured phonic progression with charming artwork and imaginative stories. Every book in the Tick Tock series also includes reading tips, tricky words to watch for, extra ways to have fun with the book, and a pronunciation guide. The multiple levels of this series will help your child progress toward independent reading. Tick Tock I Love Reading Set A contains nine hand-selected stories from both level one and level two.

Cute stories, fun pictures, but one downside March 28, 2015
Reviewer: DaNae J.  
I do like these books. My 5-6 year son does get interested in the story lines. It was easy enough that he stuck with it through the end of the story. But there were some words he did have to sound out. So there is a good balance so that he didn't get frustrated with it and quit but enough to challenge his reading level.I do agree with the other reviewer. The font choice could be better. It is super cute for me to read. But the extra swirls on letters make it more difficult to read. The font took off 1 start.

Wide variety January 19, 2015
Reviewer: Catherine E.  
There is a wide variety in this set of readers and I do appreciate that, but as a result it has forced me to supplement with additional readers while I wait for my daughter to be ready for some of the more advanced stories. If she insists we read one, sometimes I'll read, but when I come to a word she knows, I'll ask her to read it for me. That helps ;) The stories and pictures are cute and entertaining for my almost 5 year old.

Great set of Early Readers August 12, 2014
Reviewer: Samantha  
We are doing a combination of K/1st grade curriculum with my daughter this year. This set of readers is the perfect balance of easy reading (with enough challenge to keep her learning) and fun story lines! We have tried other popular "easy readers" and these are the best value for the dollar and much more interesting than the rest. I agree with the previous reviewer- the one negative is the font. The lowercase "k" looks almost like an uppercase "R" because it is looped at the top. It wouldn't stop me from recommending the set, but I would warn that if your child is especially sensitive to things like that you might want to pass.

Great, but 1 big complaint July 28, 2014
Reviewer: Jessica S.  
There is a nice variety of stories in this set. At first my reluctant reader tried to use the excuse that these books are for babies, but he quickly began to enjoy them. As far as reading levels go, they are easy enough for my Kindergartner/1st grader to get through almost completely on his own, yet they challenge him just a bit. My biggest complaint & it is a big one, is the font of the stories. All the letters like t,l,k,f,i, etc. are hooked, so he gets confused thinking they are all j's or something. The k's have a cute little loop, but it just confuses & frustrates him. A basic, non-embellished print would have made these books 5-star & worth buying the other set, but as it stands, we will not be buying more.

This is a great set! June 6, 2014
Reviewer: Jessica  
This is a cute set of books! These have great pictures and the story line is as interesting as it can be while using simplistic words that beginning readers can recognize. Its so great to see the confidence in reading take off and grow! These books definitely aid in that process!
