About the Series:
Whether you’re an advocate of the Whole Language method or of the Phonetic approach to learning, Barron’s Get Ready…Get Set…Read! series will help you develop imaginative readers. Humorous, suspenseful, and entertaining stories are combined with an effective learning method. Each story opens up an exciting place and time equipped with entertaining, lovable, and very lively characters depicted in engaging, full-color art. These stories prompt classroom discussions and activities that help children discover many topics as they learn to read.
The series instruction method emphasizes word families based on similar sounds. Thirty-five titles are separated into five different sets. Each of the sets teaches certain vowels and word families. Beginning readers start at Set 1 and work their way through to finish at Set 5.
Ten Bring-It-All-Together books are also part of the series. These books review the sounds children learn in a particular set. Word lists and teacher guidelines are included in each book. The series’ easy-to-follow color-coded system helps teachers determine which reader to use. It’s exciting when you hear a child put together words and begin to read.
