I bought this Winter Fun boxed set for my daughter (now 6) as a gentle introduction to sight-word reading after a strong phonics introduction using Bob Books and other resources.

This set includes a nice range of books on different topics, with bright, colourful illustrations. It also includes a blank book so kids can write their own, as well as a sticker chart and stickers which feature an illustration from each book as an extra incentive to keep on reading. My daughter really doesn't need an incentive, but loves having the chart up prominently anyway.

I will state strongly here that I believe in using phonics instruction FIRST and starting kids off with a solid grounding in how words sound - even though English is not 100% phonic. "Sounding out" is an essential skill in tackling any page of print, even if some words and letter combinations must be memorized.

Brand New Reader books are NOT phonics-based: they instead offer a range of visual cues and hints to help children guess what's going on on the page. The authors of The Well-Trained Mind call this "whole-to-parts" instruction, and believe it's not the best way for young kids to learn most subjects.

Still, in some cases, sight-word reading is indeed a better choice, which is why I wanted to use something like this in addition to our phonics program once my daughter's early reading was fairly well established.

The books are a fun change from some of the dryness inherent in phonics-based readers, which introduce vocabulary more slowly. The Bob Books are seriously lacking on the graphics side, whereas these readers are bright and colourful, so they look more like "real" books.

The books are not all, strictly speaking, winter-based in theme.

Read aloud: age 2 - 3 and older.
Read yourself: age 5 - 6.

Ten paperback books, each with a fun, short, easy-to-read story, are boxed together in this set for children just learning to read. Also included in this set is a Certificate of Achievement for the child, a chart with fun stickers to track reading progress, a separate guide for adults to help children succeed in reading, and an additional book where the child can write their own story.
An awesome choice for the brand new reader, children will love these stories and build confidence in their reading skills with "Brand New Readers: Winter Fun!"

I bought this for my grandson who lives in another state. He is in kindergarten and beginning to read. I was told he loved these stories, they were just the right length and interesting for someone of his age. After a short while, he could read them all on his own. His parents were very enthusiastic about this collection. Once the child masters this, there are more books in the Brand New Readers set.
