I have an early reader, getting stuck on phonetic exceptions and I was hoping this would help (at least help me to guide them). This is a systematic guide using early childhood principles of repetition, and repetition doesn’t work for many neurodiverse learners, and no gifted learners.
It’d be great for tiger parents wanting their kids with zero phonemic awareness to start school ahead of the pack, or kids with special learning needs who need to take a step back with lots of simple repetition.
I fell asleep on the first page, and if my child had seen it they would have looked at me like I had 2 heads and wouldn’t have finish half of the first lesson.
My dad taught my sister and I with this book (college math and highschool math proff. ) and we were reading above a college level by 7th grade. My dad is your typical boomer, so electronics was never part of our childhood, and they were used as an incentive.
He swears by this book and would until the day he died. He taught in an underprivileged school district, and had a 12th grade student who could not read. My dad used this book and at the end of the student’s 12th grade year, they could read.
We gift this at every baby shower, he recommends this to strangers on the streets, and family.
Over the past 25 years we have been teaching our kids to read using this book. The eldest learned quickly in K before we moved. First grade, and a poor teacher/district set her back to not being able to read.
We concluded it was our fault for allowing others to control our children’s education. We decided to homeschool. When we founds this reading book, it was almost instantly helpful. She took to it rapidly sometimes taking 2-3 lessons a day.
By the end of that summer after 1st grade she had regained all her lost reading skills and was now easily surpassing children in the neighborhood in 2nd, 3rd and even 4th grade. Fast forward 20 years and we are still using the same, ragged book, and it is still effective.
Four other children have learned to read using it. Each retained and grew in reading skills well beyond equivalent public school peer grade level all their childhood and even the 12year old reads above college grad level.
We are now using this same book to teach our two youngest children. The 7 year old reads better than public school kids 2 years older than he is and the 5 year old is becoming very impressed with his ability to read words where he once just saw random letters.
Every day is a new discovery for him and his brother now just sits and reads actual books, without pictures, as often as he reads those with. To those advocating that this is not “advanced” and suggesting other programs for older children.
I say they are wrong. Each child will be ready to read and to learn to read at a different time. But, think about it, if the child has trouble reading “advanced” is NOT what you want to throw at him or her.
This set of lessons teaches the child to use one of the greatest advantages the human brain has, pattern recognition. The child learns to recognize distinct patterns in the highly variable English language.
It uses a slightly modified written symbolic representation of those sound patterns to make them easier to recognize and learn. It then moves the child, once the patterns are learned through a logically simplified process of normalizing those new pattern recognition skills so that they can then read unmodified text with the same confidence and accuracy as they could the symbolic text.
It’s a really ingenious method that has worked for and continues to work for all seven of our children, each with distinctly differing personalities and learning types. The older (now adult) children are already fighting over who gets the book for their kids.
We plan to buy a copy of this same book for each of them.

First Little Readers Parent Pack: Guided Reading Level A
Charlesworth Liza, Schecter Deborah
Reviews From Real Customers
the books are fantastic and very easy for little hands, the pictures are helpful for my 5-year-old to pick up cues, guess what the story is about and spell out the letters sounds to try and read. absolutely love these and couldn’t recommend them enough.
the books are interesting which adds to the love of learning. Have also purchased level B, C, and D. Vey happy, highly recommend.
I purchased this set because my 6 year had trouble with her reading. So I did some research about what should I do to help her. Then I came across this book set on google and immediately I purchased it.
This set is awesome! It has 25 books in it with pictures to encourage my daughter to read and it also has a guide for parents to help their kids to improve their kids reading. My daughter loves this set and her reading has been improved and she’s now more confident in her reading.
Books are just under 15x15cm, most have just a few words on each page, very clear and simple. My kid loves them, she gets a kick out of pointing to the words as she (at this stage mostly uses the pictures to guess) what they are.
Easy enough that they can be remembered after a read through by a parent so the kid can have a go after. She was so proud when she “read” one front to back! Is starting to sound out and recognise the words.
I remember books like this at my school when I was ever so small. They are great. 100% recommend.

A wonderful book allowing the readers to have fun while teaching young children to follow directions. I purchased this book from a school book fair one year not realizing how much enjoyment my family would have reading this book.
I have never seen my grand children laugh so hard as we sat around the table and enjoyed following the directions inside this book. I can still “see” the reactions the younger ones had when they turned the pages to find out what the result of following the directions given to them revealed.
I recommend this book for pure fun and for teaching younger children how to follow directions without teaching them to follow directions. We love to read books and learn something new. This book provided a fun and interactive way to learn the concept of following directions every child needs to learn to follow for everyday life to ready them for their school journey.
It has been loaned to others to enjoy as well. We still read this book today after five years receiving the same teary eyes laughs we had from the first reading adventure.
This book is enchanting. When I read it, I was delighted by the clever device of the book, and enjoyed the interactive nature of it. But this was nothing compared to the reward of reading it with my grandson.
He had so much surprise and joy when we turned each page! (The book asks the reader, for example to shake the book. Then, when you turn the page, the colored dots that had been neatly in a row are “all shook up” on the next page.
) For me this was clever, for my grandson, it was MAGIC. He’s a rambunctious child, Santa had brought transformers and trains. But he asked to read the book with me more than once, and then requested it from his dad at bedtime.

A great product that is better then any app you can download. It also helped my grandchild understand that not everything is so much technology based. She had to use a dvd player and follow along. She’s doing better with her reading now.
Looking to purchase the next set for her summer break.
I bought this Level 2 because the Level 1 was so great for my 5 year old son. He gains confidence through reading at a very simple level and has fun learning to read because the lessons and books aren’t too advanced.
The DVD is a great addition to the book lessons and my son LOVES placing the stickers after he has completed a lesson. Already purchased the First Grade Level 1 for after my son has finished this level.
An interactive picture book from the New York Times bestselling “Prince of Preschool”Great for toddlers, preschoolers, and early readers to learn about combining colors in a fun and imaginative way. – A mess-free way to learn about transforming colors and following directions: Accept Hervé Tullet’s irresistible invitation to mix it up in a dazzling adventure of whimsy and wonder.
Follow the artist’s simple instructions and suddenly colors appear, mix, splatter, and vanish in a world powered only by the reader’s imagination. Tullet sets readers on an extraordinary interactive journey all within the printed page.
– The perfect book for young children to develop an understanding of colors – Ideal as a fun and interactive read aloud book for families or small groups – Known as the “Prince of Preschool,” the versatile Hervé Tullet has been an art director at various ad agencies, a magazine illustrator, and for the past 15 years, a creator of children’s books Fans of Press Here, Let’s Play!, and Say Zoop! will love this glorious and richly satisfying companion book, Mix It Up! Great for preschoolers and early readers to learn about combining colors in a fun and imaginative way.
– Kids will giggle as they mash, smoosh and mix up colors as they participate in the story – Paint colors are vibrant, fun and incredibly realistic – Books for kids ages 3-7Stimulating children’s book that encourages imagination and creativity.
This author is great for kids aged 2-5. This particular title is fun for littles learning about colors or for those who already know the combinations but want to take it to the level of actually mixing.
If that’s the case, I like to give finger paints along with the book as a gift so that they can actually try things out for themselves. If you prefer the no-mess route, the book on its own gives the reader the opportunity to “mix” colors and see the result.
I bought this as my three year olds loved ‘Press Here’ by the same author. They responded just as excitedly and told me it was ‘magic’. It’s very entertaining and a fun way to teach secondary colours and colour mixing.

Started with my 3 1/2 year old son – he loved it and picked it up very fast. It’s really easy to follow as a parent and the dvd is such a fun learning aid. Now at 4 he’s already reading and we’re only on level 1.
Excellent learning tool for all young budding readers! :).
So far, so good; we just received it and started on it. I am uncertain if our son is dyslexic but since local school district kicked him out because they determined “he is autistic”, I am totally on my own to determine how to educate our disabled child.

Reviews From Real Customers
My review would probably be better if there were new batteries in this toy/book – I could’ve captured how it works in video. My daughter is three and probably autistic (we are in the process of evaluating) and she really took to this toy, pouring over it daily til the batteries wore out and the pages got sticky.
It has helped her with her vocabulary a little bit and even though she doesn’t talk much she knows how to spell “Scout”, reciting “S-C-O-U-T” on many occasions during play. So it’s in English and Spanish, and I think it says words and plays music if I recall (I really need to get new batteries and get this thing working again, my daughter still plays with it without batteries).
It also seems to spark an interest in reading. It’s a great toy to buy your child, and would make a great gift if you’re looking for something for a baby/toddler. My daughter gives it 5 stars so I do too.
I’m not sure how this learning book has so many good reviews. I like the concept of the book but It’s as if the touch buttons are way too sensitive and it can’t process what’s going on. Sometimes my baby touches 2 or 3 buttons by mistake and the toy plays the sounds all together and I think that is very confusing for a toddler that is learning words.
I’m very disappointed that there is no option to press the picture and get just the object word, you will get the sounds like in the animals, the dog barks, the cat meows, but the horse makes a gallop sound the frog makes a weird jumping sound or the giraffe makes a weird sound.
I personally don’t have idea how a giraffe sounds. I expected to find the most common animals like cow, rooster and when the baby touches the animal , to say the name of the animal and then the sound.
Fun book!! Great way to teach children about pets/animals, colours, the body, mealtime, clothes, activities, outside, vehicles and opposites. Each page has interactive pictures that your child can touch and learn from.
Above the volume/on off button, there’s a switch with three categories words, fun facts and fun sounds. They have different sounds and songs your child can sing along with. If I could change one thing about this book is that when you set the book to fun facts and go to the page “animals” all the animals apart from the elephant has a “fun fact” when you’ve pressed the picture.
I find that odd because there’s loads of facts about elephants. The page doesn’t even give you a fact about the animal, it just tells you the colour of the animal. I know it’s a book for kids but they’re not really learning any facts about the animal.
Just the colour of it. Apart from that my daughter enjoys this book and uses it nearly everyday😊💕.
Beloved child educator Roger Priddy’s classic First 100 Words is now a padded board book introducing 100 essential first words and picturesYour little one will soon learn some essential first words and pictures with this bright board book.
There are 100 color photographs to look at and talk about, and 100 simple first words to read and learn, too. The pages are made from tough board for hours of fun reading, and the cover is softly padded for little hands to hold.
Positives: My baby loves it! Clear picture and Sturdy board book for small price. Hard to tear by the babies! Negatives: Small in size. But, if you want bigger the same book, you can find for a little bit more higher price! So, don’t complain about the size because under $5 comes Not that big size you might want! We have no complaint about the size.
Nice book, nice photos but the words pajamas and car are used twice. The word dog and puppy are used but they are the same animal. The word cat and kitten are used but they are the same animal. There are plenty other words that could of been used.

Our little granddaughter started Kindergarten and was doing really well with learning to read. Then the virus struck and it was the end of school for months, at a vital time in her education. The school was providing work but she needed more.
She was flying through it and we didn’t want to slow her progress. We bought another series of beginner readers, up to level three and then discovered these beautiful little books at just the right level.
So, as she returns to school, her reading has improved dramatically. We will keep supplementing her school books with additional little readers, until she is happily picking up whatever she wants to, and reading.
Jumpstart reading success with this big collection of motivating storybooks correlated with Guided Reading Level B. Most pages of these full-color storybooks feature just one or two lines of simple, repetitive text to help children learn to read with ease and confidence.
Includes a tip-filled parent guide. A great value!.
I have a four year old and we started the Littke a Reader series and glad we did. He’s never been thrilled About reader despite how interesting or fun I try and make it. These books are great for beginners.
A lot of sight words, rhyming, pictures go along with stories/words so they can put two And two together to fill in the word they may not know or sound out AND THEY ARE SHORT reads. Saves pre-schooler from crying and moms sanity.

My son love theese books. He was struggling to read, but because the pictures are relatable to the words he is able to figure out the difficult words or atleast try. It helps with his sight words as well and because her feels like he is doing well he now wants to read them all the time and attempt to read other books.
This is 25 books with roughly 7 pages in each. The words are very repetitive which helps them to memorize words. I would recommend along with a few eight words flash cards.
Was pretty good I would recommend this to other persons interested in getting their little one jump started in the early years. It’s easy for them to read and attempt to comprehend. It shows because the little ones give you an amazing illustration in there own words which helps in remembering the sight words and where to use them.
New York Times bestselling author and artist James Dean’s Pete the Cat helps kids learn to read with phonics. Who knew reading could be so groovy! Reviewed by a phonics expert, these twelve short full-color books feature repeated examples of short and long vowel sounds and common sight words.
Each of the simple stories in this box set is designed to teach kids how to master reading while rocking out with Pete the Cat. Phonics teaches children the relationship between letters and the sounds they make.
A child who has mastered these relationships has an excellent foundation for learning to read and spell. According to the National Institute of Child Health & Human Development, a child who has learned phonics has a method to recognize familiar words and “decode” unfamiliar ones.
Correlates to the Common Core State Standards in English Language Arts.
Bob Books are back, now with a bright, unique box display and colored illustrations throughout that make learning to read even more fun! Bob Books Set 2: Advancing BeginnersBob Books Set 2 continues to build reading skills.
Use of three-letter words and consistent vowel sounds in slightly longer stories build confidence. Children love the hilarious (and sometimes mischievous) stories and pictures. These twelve books, filled with fun, drama, and surprise keep interest high for even the youngest readers.
Developed to guide your child gently through the earliest stages of reading, Bob Books were created to facilitate that ah-ha moment when letters first turn into words. By slowly introducing new letter sounds, using consistency, repetition and stories that fit short attention spans, your child will quickly find his or her way down the path of reading.
Each level addresses a stage in reading development; this carefully crafted, simple, and progressive approach to learning assures children success and confidence from their very earliest reading experience.
Use of three-letter words and consistent vowel sounds in slightly longer stories build confidence in Bob Books Set 2. 12 books, 12 pages each.
Sight words are words that must be recognized by sight rather than sounded out. They are the most frequently used words in the English language, such as are, was, and out. Children who are learning to read are encouraged to practice and memorize this list of words, in order to become fluent readers (who are able to read for meaning rather than stumble over words).
Sight words are taught primarily in kindergarten and first grade, though often the practice extends up through fourth grade. BOB BOOKS have always incorporated sight words, though the sounding-out approach minimized their use.
These will be the first BOB BOOKS products to focus on learning and practicing sight words. They will stand alone as two boxes – neither MY FIRST, nor numbered as a SET. Their noted grades (kindergarten or first) will serve as the level.
The titles allow parents to choose whether to prep their children for next year, or reinforce what they’ve learned last year.
I bought these because they said kindergarten. But, didn’t realize until they came that there were many different options. The kindergarten ones are kind of advance with a handful of book series before them.
I should have bought an easier series for a new 5 year old.
Bob Books are great for new readers. I was looking for a book that focused on three letter words and simple pictures that tell the story. These books do it and now the new edition of ‘Sight Words’ are great since in Kindergarten these words are being introduced at the same time.
The characters stay the same from Book 1 Beginner Reader to the end of the series. I am definitely saving these books for my 11 month son from my 5 year old son.
Roger Priddy’s Big Board First 100 Words offers simple, everyday words for infants and toddlers to develop their vocabulary, in a larger format than typical board books. Featuring 100 beautiful color photographs in a size perfect for lap reading, this tough board book introduces words and phrases for animals, toys, vehicles, and items used for mealtimes, bathtimes, and bedtimes.
Big board books are ideal for children aged 2 and up to learn how to read and identify objects, as well as develop coordination as they learn how to turn the robust pages.
I bought this book thinking it would be filled with simple words you would expect to be part of your baby’s first 100 words spoken. It does have a lot of what you’d expect as far as animals and objects, however I feel some of the words aren’t what I would expect.
For example, there is a picture of a stuffed animal labeled as “soft toy” and on the same page is a tower of fabric blocks labeled “soft blocks”. Not at all what I would think a baby would say. I would’ve loved to see a page of body parts (eyes, nose, mouth etc)—nope, but there are three pages of animals.
The first page is “colors” but instead of just labeling the colors, a colored object is shown and labeled (blue ball, brown goat). In all, my daughter does like the book, but I bought online and if I would’ve seen it in store and had the opportunity to look through it, I wouldn’t have purchased this book.
This has been a favorite book of my child since a young age. It’s good for babies as well as toddlers and beyond. Lots of pictures and themes (though a few of the pictures are not what I would have chosen—may be duplicative or hard to understand).
The only book my baby will sit through. He LOVES to pat at the pictures and has favorites on each page. I love the size of the book. With it being so big he cant just try to eat the corners while I try to read to him.

Developed by pediatrician Michael Levin, the program has also been used successfully for children with disabilities.
We started off with How to Teach Your Child in 100 Easy Lessons, which so many people swear by. My daughter HATED that book. We barely got through the first few lessons before I decided to give this book a try.
This book is so much better. We have been working on it for about 4 months now so I can now confidently say that I 100% recommend this book. My daughter is only 4. 5 yrs, so in order to not overwhelm her, we just do 1 page a day, 4-5 times a week.
We are about 1/4 of the way through the book and we are seeing great results.
We couldn’t love this book enough. this was the only book we used to teach our toddler son to read. We started when he was late 3 and finished shortly after he turned 5. He was reading a little before lesson 8.
We would let him color the pages as a reward when he finished reading. The book does not teach comprehension, but that’s a super easy fix just by asking your child questions about each story or asking them to write short summaries or sentences after they read as they move through the chapters.
Easy steps to follow for kids and adults. I have used this for both my boys when they were in preschool and both are reading above their grade level. I can’t say enough good things about this book. Go at your own pace for your child.
The pages are not overwhelming. I even learned a thing or two.
