Long and Short Vowels
The Long and Short Vowels series presents the sounds of letters within the context of stories. Children have the satisfaction of sounding out words while reading a simple story on their own. Each book is based on phonics principles that meet national language standards and is illustrated with original photographs of children from diverse cultural backgrounds. Large type, vivid full-page color photos, and a word list all make these books ideal stepping-stones to more advanced reading skills.
