While the two sets of Chinese readers I reviewed in an earlier post had flashcards to go with the readers, these English readers do not. I figured it’s pretty simple to do up our own and with so many Dolch list printables floating around on the Internet, we don’t really need those flashcards to go with the books.
These readers are vibrantly coloured, eye catching and not intimidating for young kids who have just begun their journey on sight words.
The font is large enough and the story lines are interesting and easy to relate to so it’s impossible for my boy to stop at just one book each time.
Reading these books on his own is made possible with the PenPal Whizz as he can ‘read’ the story with the talking pen when I’m busy with chores or coaching my girl.
Super love his serious look 😀
And reading these books always puts a smile on his face!!
There are less than ten words per page – most pages have an average of four words so it’s really manageable for young readers. My boy has just started on sight words so he can’t read them independently without the PenPal Whizz but I’m guessing he should be able to do so perhaps by the end of the year *cross fingers*
Here’s the good news for my readers. The good people from JLB Educational Technology are giving ONE lucky reader a set of these readers (worth $42)!
