A step-by-step, book-by-book program that guides children through the early stages of reading. Each book, carefully evaluated by a reading specialist to correlate with the Guided Reading Levels, is leveled to address the early stages of a child's reading development. Inside each box set you'll find 75 storybooks (5 copies of 15 titles) on topics children love, which makes them perfect for group learning. Each set also includes a mini-teaching guide. Level D books cover familiar topics but introduce new, more abstract ideas. Illustrations support the text but more attention to print is required. Text contains more compound and multi-syllable words with a full range of punctuation.
