START LEARNING TO READ WHILE HAVING FUN! Zany illustrations, funny animal stories, and teacher-approved learning methods come together in this collection of 10 story booklets for young pre-readers to enjoy.
Nora Gaydos has more than ten years of experience teaching kindergarten, first grade, and third grade. She was inspired to create the Now I'm Reading! program after seeing firsthand how children learn to read, and by her desire to help beginning readers develop from pre-readers to independent readers.
"The greatest success comes from a balance of phonics and
literature-based reading. Now I'm Reading!(TM) successfully
combines both to build confident, independent readers." --
Carmelita K. Williams, former president, International Reading
"Not only do [these] books provide a solid grounding in phonics and sight words, they're actually fun to read." -- bilingualmonkeys.com "The best thing about these stories is that the illustrations and stories are funny, without being cutesy. They'll appeal to boys and girls, and they'll also appeal to older kids who are working to learn phonics. They have clear story lines (a beginning, middle and end)--so kids read to understand the silly story, not just hear the words." -- greatkidbooks.blogspot.com "[The] author does a fantastic job of writing a coherent story using a limited selection of words. The stories and pictures are quite entertaining, and the vocabulary progression is excellent." -- blog.montessoriforeveryone.com
