Book Description

***One Story/Ten Books: Budding Reader eBook sets ease children into reading by teaching just 1 or 2 new words per book. The same story evolves over the course of 10 books as new words are added.***

Make learning to read easier with Budding Reader eBook sets. Illustrated by an Emmy award winning artist and developed in consultation with the former Director of Language and Literacy at Harvard Graduate School of Education, this series uses research based best practices to ease children into reading. Previewing a book dramatically improves comprehension, so the story told in each set is introduced with a wordless picture book. Repetition aids brain development, so each subsequent book expands and develops the story by adding only one or two new words. By repeating vocabulary and gradually increasing complexity, this series helps emergent readers, even reluctant ones, experience success from the very start.

Budding Reader eBook Sets are designed to be a child’s first. Help the young reader in your life get started on a life time of reading with Budding Reader books and when you do, we’ll donate an eBook to a child in need. One for You. One for the World. A Better World with Every Purchase.

FORMATS SUPPORTED: Download this to your Kindle, Amazon’s cloud reader (to read it online) or use a Kindle app and download it to an iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, PC, Mac, Blackberry, or Android-based device.

*Set 1: Cat and Rat (11 words)
*Set 2: Wit and Kit (17 words)
*Set 3: Bugs (18 words)

5.0 out of 5 stars See Dot Run? February 7, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
When my son was in preschool, I used the 1940's books about "Dot" to help him learn simple three-four letter words. This one kicks it up a notch with the colorful fun antics of Kit and Wit - because what kid doesn't love monkeys? Very cute, very useful resource!

This series of books is so fun for my four-year-old to read. His face beams with pride as he recognizes and reads the words on each page.

Lovely way to engage pre and beginning readers. Universal themes and appealing illustration make books a pleasure for parent and child. Bite-sized story and layout makes books especially effective for mobile readers using any sized-platform. Bravo.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really good readers for those who struggle April 9, 2013
By Leanne
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love these readers. I have a child with a language disorder that has really held him back with reading. These readers are gentle, well illustrated, and he loves being able to "read" on the Kindle app on our iPad. I bought all 4 sets, and I'm so glad I did.
