Our Books Engage Beginning and Struggling Readers
Written especially for emergent, beginner, catch-up and struggling readers who require extra support, our hi-interest, age-appropriate, decodable book series ensure reading success and build confidence from the outset. All of our books, games, and activities are designed to engage your child or students whether they are just starting out, or are struggling to read.
Specially Developed Decodable Books and Resources
Decodable books are specially written texts that students use as they learn to read. By introducing words with only a few new letters and sounds at each stage, students are able to read the books independently and successfully as they progress. Each of our age-respectful series is structured along a highly-sequential phonic progression that allows the reader to read a growing number of words until they become fluent, independent readers.
What Others are Saying About Phonic Books…
Teachers and parents alike are finding success for their struggling readers through Phonic Books series and activities.
While the instructional quality of the books is most important to me, the fact that my students love the books is a huge bonus. On many occasions, I have had students eagerly ask me as soon as they see me, “Have you brought the next book?”
I love that Phonic Books are truly decodable books! So many decodable readers on the market do not follow a scope and sequence. When you choose Phonic Books, you are getting true decodable text!
While the instructional quality of the books is most important to me, the fact that my students love the books is a huge bonus. On many occasions, I have had students eagerly ask me as soon as they see me, “Have you brought the next book?” For some, a Talisman book is the first book the child has ever read with great excitement.
Remembering the day that my son, Nate, sneaked Magic Belt books still brings tears to my eyes. Before Magic Belt, the only books that I could find for my son to read narrated the mundane adventures of a rat or a cat with a hat … He became a book lover because of Magic Belt, so those books are very special to me and worth every penny!
For every age of aspiring reader, we have just the right books, games and workbooks.
