For Parents - I began writing the Emergent Readers collection when my daughter was at her previous school, where they were learning how to read through a phonics program. She was learning to read CVC (consonant-vowel-consonant) words with flash cards and phonics activities. Then the teacher sent home a phonics reader with several CVC and sight words on a page, asking us to practice with our child. My daughter and I went through a painstaking experience – by the time my daughter sounded out each word the storyline of the book was lost. At this moment a thought occurred to me: Wouldn’t it be great if she could practice reading individual CVC words in a book format?
