I love these little readers. I have bought level a - d over the years and it helped my son get into reading. The books are only about 8 pages long so they don’t feel so intimidating for a new and unsure reader
my kindergartener was struggling to use the tools available to beginner readers (e.g. picture clues and sounding out words), so I bought this set for more practice at home. The past couple of weeks, I have seen significant improvement at home, and her teacher reported this morning that she's also seen improvement at school. The stories are cute, interesting, and my kindergartener and I are enjoying them together.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THESE FIRST LITTLE READERS!!! I thought I would have to hire a tutor for my granddaughter Brie. We have had this and The Level C Readers for a couple of months and Brie is reading everything in sight. Her confidence is on 💯. She reads these to me while I prepare dinner and clean the kitchen. Her teacher told me about similar, costing over 100 dollars these are just as good, again, just as good. Very well put together and easy handling for her.
Got it for a kindergartener to read. This book set is just perfect! Very age appropriate. Interesting stories for the target audience. It only has 8 pages or so thus it adequately keeps the attention span of a young one. Also the repetitive wording helps with word familiarity and site word learning. Each book is staple bound; paperback. Careful handling is needed for a long term use.
These books are good for preschoolers learning to recognize words and read, but the quality isn’t great. I am disappointed because the spines of the books, as seen in the photo, are already coming apart, and my daughter has had them for 2 1/2 weeks.
I love these little readers by Liza Charlesworth; I use them as quick reading practice for the young students I tutor in kindergarten and first grade. However, these are a drop in writing quality. Nearly all books are the "repetitive" style where only a part of a sentence on each page is changed. It also places less emphasis on phonics and sight words. These do not have the level of difficulty I expected as a jump from level C to level D books. However I am still thankful for this resource, and the illustrations, compactness and high quality of these books cannot be beat.
I tutored two little girls in first grade. At the beginning of the year they were very behind. They were progressing but after I introduced these, it seemed to click. They would come to the session with enthusiasm. After our lesson, they would begged to read 2 books instead of 1 which we only had time for. I decided with teacher's permission to extend the sessions to accommodate them. At the end of the year I got a large index card and wrote "Nyla can read." I then in different colored markers wrote down all the titles they had read.
