TOS Review: All About Reading - What Am I?
To add to our family library for generations to come, we had the chance to review the soon to be released "What Am I?" reader from All About Reading, the same creators of All About Spelling! For those of you who are using All About Spelling Level 2, you'll be glad to know that "What Am I?" follows the same sequence and word lists as Level 2, Steps 1-14. The book can also be used on its own.
Marie Rippel and Renee LaTuulippe have once again given us a delightful collection of short stories. Ten stories in all covering 160 pages.
The stories in this second reader are longer than in the Beehive Reader previously reviewed. They are still very manageable and read well. The font is a large type. My son and I enjoyed taking a look at this and reading some of the stories with their endearing characters. It was again below his reading level, but was good for reading skill reviews and just some quiet reading together. Once again we were charmed and delighted by the sometimes humorous illustrations.
The Intro states
"To the reader - between these covers you will find silliness and facts of every kind...especially for you."I can only imagine one day telling my grand child, "Come sit with Nonny and let us see "What
happens when...a boy visits an elf in the alps or a smelly musk ox goes for a swim?"
"We can find out inside, What Am I?"
Plans are in the works to be introducing a brand-new All About Reading program late this year. All About Reading can be used as a stand-alone program, but it will coordinate perfectly with All About Spelling. After Level 1, each level of All About Reading will contain two readers. All About Reading will include decoding skills, fluency, comprehension, vocabulary, and lots of reading practice.
We enjoyed the once again charming stories.
As a Mother who has taught both her children to read and reviewed a lot of products over the past ten years, I can tell you this a top rate program and would be a five star recommendation for Early Spelling and Reading.
