Yum, snacks! In LEVEL 2: SNACK ATTACK, children learn essential phonics skills while reading humorous stories featuring fun animal heroes.

· 10 story booklets with colorful illustrations and engaging text
· 40 reward stickers to encourage completion and rereading
· "After You Read" extended activity sections
· A Parent/Teacher Guide to help you figure out the best ways to use these books

Perfect for ages 4 and up! Level 2 NIR readers focus on long- and short-vowel sounds, expanded simple consonant sounds, and beginning sight word reinforcement.

The concepts and skill progression in the NIR! series are aligned to meet Common Core State Standards. This book is Fountas & Pinnell Leveled with a range of D-H; 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
