About this item

New York Times bestselling author and artist James Dean’s Pete the Cat helps kids learn to read with phonics. Who knew reading could be so groovy!

Reviewed by a phonics expert, these twelve short full-color books feature repeated examples of short and long vowel sounds and common sight words.  Each of the simple stories in this box set is designed to teach kids how to master reading while rocking out with Pete the Cat.

Phonics teaches children the relationship between letters and the sounds they make. A child who has mastered these relationships has an excellent foundation for learning to read and spell. According to the National Institute of Child Health & Human Development, a child who has learned phonics has a method to recognize familiar words and “decode” unfamiliar ones. Correlates to the Common Core State Standards in English Language Arts.

The books are paperback and a smaller size. The content is still wonderful. It has a book for each short and long vowel sound and a book of all short and a book of all long vowels. The box was destroyed by our kids quickly but the books are still in decent shape. Definitely a good buy for the money.

Perfect beginning reading for kindergarten/first grade. I wish I had bought these sooner. The beginning page of each book starts with a word review and gives parents a chance to use or build a flash card sight word vocabulary. Your child will feel confident reading these easy beginning books, and...see moreof the reviewer's review

great stuff! I was a little skeptical over the actual size of the books when they arrived, but the size and length of story (shot stories) are what my little one needed. She's instantly gravitated to the books and coming along nicely.
