Learn to Read: Phonics Storybook is a great book to teach phonics to your children.

In the introduction, the author gives some tips on how you, as a parent or educator, can have your students do the activities presented here and learn through them.

There are 25 chapters, each focusing on a sound, for instance words in -et (pet, vet, wet), in -ig, etc, going from simple to more difficult.

Each chapter consists in a short story with six beautiful pictures and a short line under each. In just six lines, the author manages to produce fun stories, all with words sounding alike!
Each story is followed by two activities: one is a page where the young students have to trace the words they have encountered in the chapter, and the other is a game, also focused on identifying words containing the same sound.

For the parents, the book ends with a very detailed index of all the sounds. I think this could be helpful if educators identify sounds their children are struggling with.

The book is really gorgeous in its concept and illustrations, and it looks very helpful to me.

You might also want to visit the author’s website, to find many more smart activities for your young learners.

VERDICT: Gorgeous and very helpful book to learn how to read, through fun stories!
