    This set of 15 classic stories was designed with the early reader in mind. Learn cross-cultural fairy tales while also building reading skills. Folk tales come from both traditional (The Ugly Duckling, The Tortoise and the Hare) and diverse backgrounds (Martina the Cockroach and The Spider and the Beehive). The word length for these 5.5” x 5.5” storybooks ranges from just over 200 to mid-400. Each book’s guided reading level is listed inside the front cover. Be aware that the term “easy reader” is used a bit broadly. The guided reading levels included start with level E (one story) and include levels F (two stories), G (7 stories), H (3 stories) and I (2 stories. Although challenging words are included (nightingale, snoozed, cockroach), the children can learn these words by using the brief picture glossary at the end of the story. The set comes with a listing of the included guided reading levels, word count, challenging vocabulary list and one comprehension question. These would be good for a parent to read along with their younger reader, assisting in the reading process. Note: book cover colors do not correlate to reading level. Store your books in the included cardboard case. Each book is 16 pp, sc. ~ Ruth

A small workbook (same size as readers) is also included and has one page to be completed after reading each book. Children can trace and practice writing numbers on the last few pages of the workbook, 0-20 and 100. A sheet of 16 reward stickers is also included to encourage your math learner. ~ Donna

    This book provides a convincing argument for using McGuffey's readers. Starting by examining the life of William Holmes McGuffey, the author shares the story of how the readers were developed and makes a case for McGuffey's significant impact on 19th century education. It also examines the strong moral values built into the readers. Critics' statements about the readers are included, as well as arguments in favor of using the original readers instead of "updated versions" developed without McGuffey's input. Excerpts from McGuffey's writings are included, illustrating his views on education. If you want to know more about the McGuffey readers, you should check out this book – just be warned that you may be inspired to switch over to using the McGuffey readers. 214 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

    The Elementary Reader contains 30 lessons and is considered the textbook for the course.  Each lesson includes a dialogue or short essay with vocabulary lists and lengthy grammar notes, and a one-page cultural notes section. Stories are illustrated with full-color drawings. This course emphasizes basic grammar structure and principles while using conversations that represent real-life situations. Vocabulary is introduced below the dialogue in easy-to-read charts with simplified (at left) and traditional (at right) characters. Since either simplified or traditional characters are used and taught in different parts of the Chinese-speaking world, this combination is an added bonus. Please note that simplified characters, pinyin and an English translation are used to teach the main lesson. However, for those wishing to learn only traditional characters, the dialogue is written fully in traditional characters on a separate page.

      The listening components for the text, vocabulary lists and workbook are free and are available through smart phone with a QR reader or computer as a downloadable audio file.
