Research shows that when phonics is taught in a structured way – starting with the easiest sounds and progressing through to the most complex – it is the most effective way of teaching children to read. Children who have been taught phonics also tend to read more accurately than those taught using other methods, such as ‘look and say’. This includes children who find learning to read difficult, for example those who have dyslexia.

As with all books, you can encourage your child to ‘sound out’ unfamiliar words and then blend the sounds together from left to right, rather than looking at pictures and guessing. Our phonetic E-books eliminate the need for this, as they allow the reader to sound out letters, blended sounds, words, and full sentences.
