Short Vowel Shorts: The First Five Multi-word Books Your Child Can "Read On My Own"

Is your child ready to read? If they know all their letter sounds, they can sound out (decode) and read these very short, confidence-building stories for children.

Fat Cat vs. Bad Bat is the third phonics story in this series and utilizes only the short vowel a.

This very short story can just be a silly interaction between a cat and a bat that helps children hop into reading, or it could provide an opportunity to talk about how our actions can affect others, consequences of our actions, ways we can respond rather than retaliation and how seeking to understand one another might change the way we treat others.

Bad Bat is rude to/bullies Fat Cat. How will Fat Cat feel? How will Fat Cat respond? What do you think happens next? How could this interaction have been different?

Short Vowel Shorts is a series of five phonics books for kids that can help them gain confidence as they learn how to read. The books are designed to be an engaging compliment to word family or phonics worksheets and other reading activities.

They don’t contain any sight words/tricky words, so children who know all their letter sounds but haven’t learned sight words yet can sound out (decode) the words and read them, initially with help from a parent or teacher, and then by themselves.

Each story contains only one short vowel sound, so children are only deciphering one vowel sound for the whole story rather than a mix of multiple vowel sounds.

The aim of Short Vowel Shorts is to provide parents and teachers with an option for a phonics step between single letter sounds/word families and short stories that contain sight words and a mix of multiple vowel sounds.

With original full color illustrations and in story format, Short Vowel Shorts can be an engaging supplement to word families that will have children gaining skills, confidence, and enjoyment as readers, and saying: "Can I Read-It-On-My-Own?" and then: “I just Read-It-On-My-Own!”

No sight words/tricky words.
Full color original illustrations.
Fun characters and stories.
Builds Skills, Confidence & Enjoyment
