Publisher Description

Is your child ready to read? If they know all their letter sounds, then they can decode and read these very short books for children. Ed Egg vs. Peg Leg Egg is the second phonics eBook in this series and utilizes only the short vowel e.

Help your children hop into reading with this short story about what happens when a plain egg meets a pirate egg.  You can simply enjoy seeing the satisfaction of a child successfully reading a whole story, or you can use the opportunity to help kids begin to develop the skills of predicting what happens and making inferences about what happened. 

Short Vowel Shorts is a series of five phonics books for kids that can help them gain confidence as they learn how to read.  The books are designed to be an engaging compliment to word family or phonics worksheets and other reading activities. They don’t contain any sight words, so children who know all their letter sounds but haven’t learned sight words yet can decode and read them, initially with help from a parent or teacher, and then by themselves.

Each story contains only one short vowel sound, so children are only deciphering one vowel sound for the whole story rather than a mix of multiple vowel sounds.

The aim of Short Vowel Shorts is to provide parents and teachers with an option for a phonics step between single letter sounds/word families and short stories that contain sight words and a mix of multiple vowel sounds.  Hopefully, being in an illustrated story format, Short Vowel Shorts can be an engaging supplement to word families that will have children gaining skills, confidence, and enjoyment as readers, and saying: "Can I Read-It-On-My-Own?" and then: “I just Read-It-On-My-Own!”

My son LOVES to read these books!

My Kindergartener is learning to read and is super enjoying this book series. He can read them with little help and thinks they are so funny! They are much more interesting than most early readers and are very basic for just starting out. I love that they are only short vowel words which build his confidence.
