The SuperBooks Program uses a phonics-based vocabulary emphasizing word patterns (rhyming words) combined with context and pictures clues to develop successful readers. Comprehension is emphasized from the beginning. SuperBooks are colorful and easy to teach; Phonics skills are introduced gradually and sequentially. Children love the 8-page format with review words for spelling in the inside back cover of each book.

Use Super Books:

as a complete program for beginning readers
for instruction in phonics, spelling, and phonemic awareness
for intervention with at-risk students
or guided reading and sequential skills instruction
for Title 1, ESL, & Special Education
