Happy Kids with Books

Sample Books and Instructional Materials

About our Books and Free Samples

Free samples include eReaders (student books), lessons and Learning Games, such as Sounds Bingo (a phonemic awareness game) and other games.​

Student Books are designed to be read with a "friend" who is already a reader, such as a teacher, tutor, family member, or peer. The "friend" reads the Helper Text (always in gray box) and the student reads the Student Text (always in white space). In early books, the Student Text is written in text bubbles.

 

Students only read words that have been taught or decodable words that are comprised of previously taught letter-sounds.
