Usborne Phonics Readers

Cheery Phonics Stories for the Beginning Reader
Hurray! Your child has been initiated into the world of phonics and both you and he are eager to start reading “real books”. With its collection of engaging stories about uncommon animals, all busy with child-pleasing adventures, Usborne Phonics Readers are the place to start.

Phonetic Approach and Rhyming Words Strengthen Fluency
Created in consultation with a renowned language expert, this entertaining collection uses phonics repetition to help your child learn to read. Usborne Phonics Readers encourage new readers to sound out the words as they go, while fun rhymes will help children to anticipate word endings. This repetition and phonetic approach is of major importance in helping your child to crack the reading code with ease. While Usborne Phonics Readers primarily contain words which can be sounded out using basic phonics rules, every story does have a handful of sight or irregular words to challenge and expand your child’s skills.

Legendary Stephen Cartwright Illustrations
The best part of the Usborne Phonics Readers has to be the legendary Stephen Cartwright illustrations, which are virtually guaranteed to hold the interest of even the youngest reader. As in all the books he illustrates, he has hidden a little yellow duck on each page. This and the occasional fold-out flaps add an element of surprise that will captivate your child.

Includes Additional Resources
Information about phonics is at the beginning of each of the five books, and inside the back cover there is also a phonetic breakdown of the words and a list of the irregular words that your child will encounter.

One Caveat
I may be an old curmudgeon, but when our children were young and highly impressionable, I would white out the word "luck” before we read it together. In those days I found the use of the terms “lucky,” “good luck” and “bad luck” a full-on denial of the working of God. I’m told now that the word has lost some of that pungency, but if you are as fuddy-duddy as I am, you will want to be armed with white-out for those occasional references in these books.

Reviewer: Gena G.  
We are reading this book to our 3-year old. He loves it and within 1 reading was asking for the book by name. Now it's part of our bedtime reading every night.
