“One way to lay the foundation for early reading success is reading to your child every day. Step into Reading phonics books offer a unique way to turn daily reading into a pleasant and valuable experience.”
–Wiley Blevins, Reading Specialist, Ed.M., Harvard University
Kindergarten-Grade 1-On 11 spreads, a mouse magician changes a middle vowel, thus creating a new word. Some of the pairs, such as "leg" and "log," will be familiar to beginning readers. Others, such as "rig" and "rug," will be less so. However, the color cartoon illustrations, featuring a mix of animals and people of varying ethnicity, show clearly what a "sax" is, even if the musical instrument is unfamiliar to children. A cheery introduction to vowels.
