Develop early literacy skills with Handprints storybooks. The storybooks give children practice reading connected text. The program teaches decoding while providing opportunities to apply this phonetic knowledge, along with meaning and language cues, in reading whole texts. The approach reflects the latest research on phonemic awareness, phonics, and beginning reading. This set included 10 early readers. Sentence structure, word choice, and pictures provide a variety of cues that encourage strategic reading. Print size, sentence positioning, and word spacing are adapted to the level of the storybook. Attractive black-and-white illustrations accompany the 16-page text, and five-, six- and seven-year-olds will enjoy the story lines. High-frequency words build a strong sight vocabulary and provide a firm basis for developing decoding skills.
