Overview

TEACH YOUR CHILD TO READ WHILE HAVING FUN! Simple sentences and strong picture cues help guide young children to reading success with this award-winning learn-to-read series.

What could be more exciting than hearing your child read a book to you for the first time? The Now I'm Reading! books for emerging readers are just right for children who want to read but aren't quite ready to sound out words using phonics.

At the Pre-Reader level, each of the 10 stories in LOOK AROUND! uses a proven system of simple, patterned text and strong visual cues to build confidence in the earliest readers. Each booklet focuses on a specific early-learning concept (like colors, animals, family, and shapes) to help kids feel like "real" readers as they learn simple sight words and reading habits.

Inside the CD binder-like package, you'll find:
· 10 story booklets with colorful illustrations and engaging text
· 40 reward stickers to encourage completion and rereading
· "Words to Know" and "Stretch Your Mind" activity sections
· A Parent/Teacher Guide to help you figure out the best ways to use these books

Perfect for ages 3 and up! Books in the NIR Pre-Reader Level focus on read-along stories, strong picture clues, predictable patterned text, and letter and sound recognition.

The concepts and skill progression in the NIR! series are aligned to meet Common Core State Standards. This book is Fountas & Pinnell Level A/B; information on individual booklet levels and Lexile Measures is available at the Now I'm Reading website.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“The greatest success comes from a balance of phonics and literature-based reading. Now I’m Reading!™ successfully combines both to build confident, independent readers." — Carmelita K. Williams, former president, International Reading Association

"Not only do [these] books provide a solid grounding in phonics and sight words, they’re actually fun to read.” — bilingualmonkeys.com

“The best thing about these stories is that the illustrations and stories are funny, without being cutesy. They'll appeal to boys and girls, and they'll also appeal to older kids who are working to learn phonics. They have clear story lines (a beginning, middle and end)so kids read to understand the silly story, not just hear the words.” — greatkidbooks.blogspot.com

“[The] author does a fantastic job of writing a coherent story using a limited selection of words. The stories and pictures are quite entertaining, and the vocabulary progression is excellent.” — blog.montessoriforeveryone.com
