DOG ON A LOG Books are Decodable books which means a learner who has been taught the phonics rules and the limited sight words in that book can sound them out and read them. They are a Systematic Series because one Step of books follows another. The words used reflect the inclusion of 1 to 3 new phonics rules in each Step. Each Step of books builds on the skills practiced in the prior Steps. There are five books at each Step.
The chapter books are written in a chapter format with one picture in most chapters. They are longer, have more detail, and sometimes offer more complexity than the Let's GO! Books. They're great for practicing known and newly introduced phonics rules. They're also just fun reading.
DOG ON A LOG Let’s GO! Books are shorter versions of DOG ON A LOG Chapter books. Let’s GO! books tell the same stories with about 8 pictures and only a few sentences per page. They’re perfect as an introduction to the new phonics rules or simply for fun reading for younger kids.
Most kids who read DOG ON A LOG Books are over-the-moon-proud that they can finally read a book without so much frustration. This builds confidence in new and struggling readers. Their parents are excited that, along with reading sight words, their kids can decode every word on every page. With each progressing Step the readers gain more confidence as the vocabulary, grammar, and stories become more complex and they see their skills and abilities growing with the books.
