This set of five slipcase-bound books is third in a series that introduces the fundamentals of reading to children from pre-school through grades K and 1. This setís long-vowel titles are five volumes in a comprehensive 18-volume set of basic readers. They use the phonics method as they teach kids to recognize words in which the dominant vowel sound is the long a, e, i, o, or u. Each book in this set concentrates on a single vowel. All are Level 2 readers that present amusing stories with eye-catching color illustrations. Each title also suggests an activity that encourages kids to interact with the bookís subject matter. Follow-up material in each book includes a word list, summarizing all the words being taught, plus a letter to parents and teachers explaining the fundamental concepts underlying both the series and the specific title.
The Valu-Pak method of acquiring these readers for $15.96 per set gives the purchaser a savings of $3.99 as compared with purchases of the five books separately, which would cost $19.95. All of the remaining volumes in the Readerís Clubhouse series can also be purchased as sets at comparable savings. The three other Valu-Pak sets that complete the Readerís Clubhouse series are: Level 1 Short-Vowel Valu-Pak (5 volumes); Level 1 Short-Vowel Review Valu-Pak (4 volumes); and Level 2 Long-Vowel Review Valu-Pak (4 volumes).
