Fifty-five small readers come in a boxed set. While they do not follow as strict a phonetic progression as do some of the other phonetic readers, they do begin with short vowels and gradually increase the phonetic complexity. (For most children, you will still need additional practice with short vowel words beyond these readers.) While there are a few Bible stories and some character-building stories, most are about children, fairy tales, nature, and other common subjects. Books are illustrated in full color. The price is very reasonable for so much good quality reading material. These should be good for kindergarten and first grade.
