This primer picture book is for children learning to read at primer level.
The book is written in large letters to make it easy to read. Pages are done separately, to address the issue of letter and picture distortion on some e-readers. The book makes extensive use of sight “flash” words from the Dolch list to help children easily master these words.
The Dolch word list is a list of frequently used English words compiled by Edward William Dolch, a major proponent of the "whole-word" method of beginning reading instruction. The list was prepared in 1936 and was originally published in his book Problems in Reading in 1948.
The list contains 220 "service words" that have to be easily recognized in order to achieve reading fluency in the English language. The compilation excludes nouns, which comprise a separate 95-word list. Between 50% and 75% of all words used in schoolbooks, library books, newspapers, and magazines are a part of the Dolch List basic sight word vocabulary.
The words in this ebook are used with illustrations and are aimed at children who now need to concentrate and focus on reading, identifying words using pictorial representation first.
