Help kids ages 3 to 5 learn to read using simple stories that focus on phonics
Learning phonics, a technique that relates specific sounds with letters, is an important skill for new readers to master. The Learn to Read: Phonics Storybook is a colorful, confidence-building book that will help little learners gain fundamental reading skills while entertaining them.
The Learn to Read: Phonics Storybook includes:
- 25 funny stories―Each story utilizes the word families and predictable sound patterns commonly used in phonics. Kids will delight in the tale of a pig with a wig who can dance a jig and laugh at a fox named Jox who can dance in a box.
- Essential word families―Word families contain the same ending patterns. For example, cat, sat, and mat. These stories feature many of the word families kids need to know to become strong readers.
- Educational activities―Includes fun-filled activities at the end of each story to help kids identify and remember the sounds they just read. They’ll trace letters, do word searches, and more.
This beginning reader book introduces kids to phonics progressively―stories go from easiest to most challenging to help them build confidence. By the time they finish, they might just ask to read to you!

I particularly found this helpful as learning to read using phonics is before my time :-/ but this also guided me through the process and so I can help my son in a way consistent with the methods of his preschool.
Then it has a handwriting practice page of the words and a puzzle page.
Really lovely and the stories are quite funny. My 5 year old enjoys it.
