PreS-Gr 1--Crisp full-color photos on white backgrounds illustrate these phonetics-based easy readers. In Dan and Dan, a white boy lovingly describes his relationship with his grandfather and namesake. My Pal Al features a black girl describing her favorite stuffed animal. Both books have large print, short words, and a text designed to reinforce vowel sounds and consonant blends. The rhyming narratives read well and carry readers through the books. An afterword explains the phonetic concepts to adults and gives advice on reading together. A welcome new series for the earliest readers.

The photos are where the series really shines however. The pictures of real children are simply mesmerizing for kids.
The only drawback is that some of the stories are ultra simple. This means that they may not appeal to children that are used to being read more sophisticated material. My own daughter, 5 when we started reading these, read the books for practice, but really didn't care all that much for some of the stories.
However, this is one of the books she did like.
Four Stars. This book has a lovely story about a girl and her bunny pal, Al. It is a great beginning reader with fun pictures of Al the bunny.
