Three series aimed at beginning readers will gear children up for fall. The Now I'm Reading! series offers two titles by Nora Gaydos, illus. by B.B. Sams, focusing on phonics, each in a brightly colored corrugated binder with a magnetic closure. Animal Antics covers short-vowel sounds for "level one" readers; Amazing Animals highlights long-vowel sounds for "level two" readers. A Parent Guide bound into the left side of the binder offers tips and includes 40 stickers for rewarding successful readers; on the right, 10 numbered 12-page stories fit into transparent sleeves. Each story concludes with a set of questions for "After You Read" plus the skills taught in the tale.
