Series: Phonics readers
A series of fun stories using very simple synthetic phonic-based text. Synthetic phonic learning is the process of reading by sounding the individual sounds of a word and then blending them together to read the word as a whole. With fold out flaps to make the reading experience more interactive. Written in conjunction with an educational psychology expert.
“Usborne's series of children's first reading books will forever be associated with the delightful illustrations of Steven Cartwright, who was the publisher's de-facto in-house artist until his untimely death in 2004. The charming images are combined with perfectly pitched storylines and simple rhyming sentences based on phonetic learning principles that will make learning to read a real joy for kids. And, of course, in true Cartwright tradition, there's a little yellow duck to find on every page to make the experience even more fun.”
