  • Long sounds: s-j-f-r-z-v-m-l-n

The books are full of pictures of each animal. Children will learn more about…

  • what they look like
  • their family
  • etc.

Each book contains

  • a complete story
  • 16 pages of easy-to-read text and vivid pictures

  • a list of new sight words

Some books feature predatory animals. Look at the samples before ordering, as some pictures might impress more sensitive children. There is no blood, but there is a lion whose mouth is closed on the neck of a deer and a boa that suffocates its prey.
