"This entertaining new series ofsimplified, illustrated readers has been developed specifically in order to enableyoung children to learn to read by themselves, needing only minimal helpfrom parents or teachers."
To see ALL the Word by Word graded readers, please visit our website at: wordbywordseries.comThis book, Lee and Pat, is the first book in the Word by Wordseries. It is intended for English-speakingchildren learning to read as well as children learning English as a second orforeign language. In this first early reader, we meet the teacher, Lee, Pat and their very clever dog, Kim.
This dog is so clever he can even READ what the children write!
The story is told using just 17 different key words + 3 names of characters. These most commonly used key words are frequently and systematically repeated throughout the book in order to ensure effective learning.
All the details in the book are revealed in language (words and structure) that has been rigorously selected to be as simple and understandable as possible for young readers.
For example, did you know that just 25 most commonly used words make up about one-third of all words written or spoken in English? The first 100 most frequently used words make up about one-half of all written and spoken English. By the end of the 12-book Word by Word series, children will have learned the 1,000 most frequently used words which comprise more than 95% of all written and spoken English.
The content of all Word by Word readers is based on extensive, diligent research into the most frequently used English words and structures. The key words and structures are presented gradually and systematically throughout the series. For example, all new words and structures are repeated at least 15 times subsequent to their first appearance in the series. This, together with the phonic emphasis in each book, ensures effective and rapid learning as well as maximum retention and comprehension. It is this very systematic control of vocabulary and structure that makes Word by Word graded readers unique.
All the books in the series have been extensively trialed and repeatedly improved over a period of many years and are now proven to be extremely effective in building functional literacy in children of many ages and nationalities, including the author's own children.
The series consists of 12 books in 4 levels.
Book 1: Lee and Pat
Book 2: Lee and Pat like to play
Book 3: Lee and Pat go with Daddy
Book 4: Lee and Pat go to school
Book 5: Lee has a friend

Book 7: A very good week
Book 8: Let's go shopping
Book 9: Pat's birthday
Book 10: All about animals
Book 11: Our world

By the end of the series, the child will have learned to read and understand all of the most important English words and structures. At this point, the child will be functionally literate and fully capable of independent reading.
