Essential Sight Words Level I – Introductory Readers (Set of 8 books) (Learn to Read Books)

Kay de Silva

Price: FREE

Kay de Silva’s ‘Essential Sight Words Series’, gave me an opportunity to help my kids learn how to read without the frustration of being overwhelmed with words and to also feel confident as they gradually pick up words with little effort! The other plus point of this series is the formulation of the Readers, which guides both the parent and the child in a very simple, gradual and interesting manner. The best indication of the impact of this series to me was seeing the excitement and smiles at the end of a session! I would definitely recommend this series to all parents keen on helping their children to read and I must say that I am very excited about going on this wonderful reading journey with my children!

Essential Sight Words is a series of graded readers that will teach your child to read. As the very first book in this series, it introduces and reinforces many basic sight words found in everyday reading. This book comprises eight readers in one.

The scheme is based on the Dolch word list and additional sight words* which are regarded as the top 25 most commonly used words in contemporary English literature. These 25 words make up over one-third of all printed material. So a solid foundation in this comprehensive list is the best start to your child’s journey in language development.

Research shows that learning to read in context is more effective than any other method such as the use of flash cards. You will notice that the readers are written in contexts familiar to children. The ability to relate in this way captures the little reader’s interest.

Confidence is the essence of successful learning. So repetition is used judiciously to consolidate learning and build the reader’s confidence.
New words are highlighted as they are introduced. The book also includes a section on how the scheme is best used to make the most of your child’s reading experience.

Please note that this series of books are not ‘picture books’. They are based on a proven systematic approach to reading, where children are encouraged to concentrate on the letters and words, without the distraction of pictures. So the use of pictures is limited to the beginning of each reader when new nouns are introduced. In this way the young mind is allowed to remain focused. This is considered a more traditional approach and one of the best ways of learning to read. It will contribute to developing a solid reading foundation. Read more about this in the authors introduction to the book (freely available to read through the Amazon look inside feature).

My ABC Animals Of Africa

My ABC Animals Of Africa

Deborah Bradley

Price: FREE

This book is a fantastic conversation starter as children get engaged with counting, sounding out animal names or sharpening their observation skills on every single page. I saw animals I’ve never seen before! Beginning with the letter “A” and going through every letter of the alphabet to the letter “Z”, there are one or two animals per page with a statement challenging the child to look carefully at the picture or answer a question. Great book to read cuddled up on the couch with wee ones!

Darin Pope

Take your child on an imaginary trip to Africa with “My ABC Animals Of Africa.” As you journey through each page, your child will have a chance to get familiar with the alphabet while enjoying the vibrant pictures.

This book is perfect for bedtime and for children who are learning to read. It is filled with 26 pages of beautiful color animal pictures (you’ll probably come across at least one or two animals that are new even for you!).

Recommended for ages 2 and up.
