  1. Amazing!

    This reading series is the best tool I have ever used for reading instruction and reading intervention! I love all Flyleaf products!

    These are the nicest phonics based readers that I have found. Beautiful full color artwork and stories that are engaging.

  3. Bought for son’s school

    The teachers and children absolutely love these books and are a big part of their reading program at Montessori.

  4. The Way to Teach

    My son and I read one of these a night and he is making great progress in reading. I need to help him with the new sounds and it takes a while to learn phonetics but they work wonderfully. Completely worth the initially duanting price.

  5. Wonderfully appealing and well-sequenced

    Posted by Unknown on 17th Dec 2017

    This is the best emergent reader series I've found. (I am an early childhood educator and have evaluated a lot of emergent reading curricula.) The beautifully illustrated books convey meaning, as well as carefully sequenced phonics concepts, and children will find even the simplest stories engaging and challenging. The books have an authentic, high-quality appeal, so children will feel excited about learning to read from the very start. These books are highly decodable but also offer many opportunities for developing vocabulary and comprehension - not a given in many competitors' simplistic or boring examples. But because the books' phonics objectives are so carefully sequenced, children don't have to struggle with too many sight words or randomly introduced phonics concepts that seem out of place. In other words: children can read successful with a higher degree of independence and less scaffolding from the adult coach/teacher. That said, the teacher guides are extremely comprehensive and full of excellent tips and suggested activities, all of which are evidence-based and reflect current best practices on reading instruction. I only wish these products were more affordable; it's a stretch for me to purchase them. But I can understand why they cost more than the typical series; the quality is significantly higher from both pedagogic and aesthetic perspectives. Highly recommend.
