Budding Reader eBooks use an innovative format to ease children into reading. Using research-based best practices identified by the National Reading Panel, each of the five Budding Reader eBook sets (one for each short vowel sound) tells an original story over the course of ten books. Previewing a book dramatically improves reading comprehension, so Book 1 in each set is a wordless picture book which introduces the story through colorful illustrations. Repetition aids brain development, so the story is retold in Books 2-10 with an ever-expanding vocabulary. By repeating words and gradually adding new ones, Budding Reader eBooks help new readers (even reluctant ones) experience success from the very start.
In total, the Budding Reader eBook series introduces more than 60 simple words including dozens of common sight words. Learning is reinforced with free companion writing worksheets (available at buddingreader.com) which provide a multisensory experience and enable children to practice both reading and writing. A free parent guide with tips for working with new readers is also available on the website.
The fourth Budding Reader eBook set, Hop!, features the short “o” vowel sound. It introduces 11 new words (Bop, do, hop, hops, looks, Mop, Pop, not, they, up, will) and reviews seven simple words previously introduced in the series (and, at, down, go, look, on, stop).
•Set 1: Cat and Rat (Short a; 11 words)
•Set 2: Wit and Kit (Short i; 17 words)
•Set 3: Bugs (Short u; 18 words)
•Set 4: Hop! (Short o; 18 words)
•Set 5: Hens (Short e; 22 words)
For every eBook set sold, Budding Reader donates one to a child in need. One for You. One for the World. A Better World with Every Purchase.
Gold Mom’s Choice Award Winner: The Mom’s Choice Awards has named Hop! among the very best in family-friendly media, products and services.
