Yesterday, I presented Learn to Read: Phonics Storybook. For today, here is a very similar book, more focused on sight than sound: Learn to Read: Sight Words Storybook, also super helpful for young readers.

This is basically the twin book to the one I talked to you about yesterday, with the exact same method, even though the authors and illustrators are different. But just as good!
The goal of the book is to learn 50 of the most common sight words.
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 two sight words, for instance like to or you have, 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, with two repetitive words.
Each story is followed by two activities: one is a page where the young students have to trace the two words they have encountered in the chapter, and the other is a game, also focused on identifying these same two words.

The book ends with an index of the 50 words.

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. The introduction and the book cover mention the author has a website, but its name is never given! I found it fr you: Live, Laugh, I Love Kindergarten.

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