Editorial Reviews

Old Schoolhouse Magazine - Jenny Thompson
This book takes a child beyond just letters and sounds, teaching a child how to put words together. Word families are emphasized with the rhyming text of each story. Just by learning a few sight words and CVC words from this book, your child will have a good foundation for reading. You will not be disappointed by these beautiful, high quality books...some of the best I've seen for young, emerging readers.
National Kindergarten Association - Liz Blek
"Magic Words", the companion book to "Magic Letters", provides the next natural step for all beginning readers including those readers who gobble up each new experience with print as well as those who hesitate and/or struggle. The reader experiences an interesting series of short chapters beginning with simple word families and progresses onto more difficult sentences. Author, Julie Rebboah, provides another wonderful learning opportunity for all beginning readers, parents, and literacy coaches.
Midwest Book Review - James Cox
"Magic Words" is a learning-to-read book for children entering kindergarten or first grade. Filled with colorful, playful illustrations and rhyming, easy word-recognition text. "Magic Words" will enable teachers and parents to encourage children to become avid readers.
