Learning about word families is an essential skill for helping young readers become familiar with both the sounds and the spelling of words. These silly stories highlight common rhyming words with endings that are spelled the same way. This series is a fun way to introduce phonics and early literacy skills.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rhyming Reader with Cute Pictures!, February 25, 2015
This review is from: Not a Lot, Robot! (Word Families II)
This is a great word family reader. This means that the story focuses on words that sound alike: so lot, rot, hot, and roBOT. This is a very nice, modern reader with simple, cute illustrations. As a teacher, I’ve seen that kids can learn to read in all kinds of ways. However, this word family thing is educationally sound and, importantly, fun!
Note that this book is illustrated by Amy Cartwright, who also did the #1 bestseller “Princess Potty” book. Her drawing is amazingly cute. 🙂
All the titles in this series include:
Don’t Trip, Pip
Stay, Kay!
Not a Lot, Robot!
Please Take Jake!
