The Homeschool Resource Room reviews Phonic Books

More and more parents are choosing to homeschool their children rather than sending them to a traditional public or private school. There are many reasons why a family may choose to homeschool, some of which include dissatisfaction with the educational choices available, different philosophies, be that educational or religious, and the belief that their child is not progressing as they should within a traditional school structure.

One of the advantages of homeschooling is that the child can progress at their own pace and the whole experience can be more flexible than traditional schooling. You can create your own schedule, design your own curriculum and there is a multitude of resources in which to choose from.

Whether you’re an experienced homeschooler or just deciding whether or not to begin, Phonic Books for Beginner and Catch-Up Readers are the perfect solution for home learning!

  • Decodable text at every stage
  • Age-appropriate illustrations and story lines
  • Highly structured scope and sequence for phonic progression
  • Gradual use of high frequency/sight words
  • Short chapters for reluctant readers
  • Workbooks linked to to the reading books with both pre and post reading activities

And you don’t need to just take our word for it, Ashley Fox, former teacher, mum of three, and creator of The Homeschool Resource Room gives her honest opinion and reviews our books in her blog post:


“These books are fantastic to support kids of any age who are learning to read. Both the beginning and catch-up readers are quality, high-interest books that can supplement reading instruction, reinforce skills, and provide authentic practice that will build your child’s confidence in reading.

I would specifically recommend the Catch Up Readers and workbooks to parents helping older kids who struggle with reading and decoding. They are unique in that they are designed to address the needs of big kids who are working on building early reading skills. You can work through these together, but don’t be surprised if your child wants to take these books out of the designated learning time and into their room to read on their own!

These books are a great resource for parents and a wonderful stepping stone for learning to read. Whether you’re homeschooling, supporting your struggling reader after school, or just want to get your kids some books that they’ll be able to enjoy without frustration, I highly recommend checking out PhonicBooks.” Ashley Fox, The Homeschool Resource Room.
