Reviews - What do customers think about Clifford's Phonics Fun Box Set #1?
Great set for beginners! May 3, 2008
I bought this set for my daughter so that we can continue to practice her reading during the summer months. She loves it. It also helps that she is a Clifford fan. She is so excited that she can read to me instead of the other way around. My 4 yr old son likes to look at the books too.
Fun Reading Practice Mar 22, 2008
My five-year-old son has been using these for home school reading practice. We bought them because he had been through his curriculum readers and was bored with them, but he wasn't quite ready to just jump into "real" books. They were a bit of a challenge for him at first, but just enough challenge not to be frustrating and to keep him learning. The books do contain special sounds ("ch," "sh," etc.), but the intro of each book takes a moment to cover the new sounds and any "fun" sight words so he is prepared (not frustrated) when he comes to the new words.
good phonic sets for beginner reader Jul 4, 2007
The materials in this phonic sets are appropriate for beginner readers. My daughter can read these books. There are good repetitions of the key words for memorization. You get 12 books in this set.
DOESN'T ANYONE UNDERSTAND WHAT PHONICS MEANS? Oct 13, 2006
I have a 3YO son who can read any word he can sound out like cat, sit etc.
I got this set because I wanted what it promised - Phonics - LEVEL ONE. That is, words that can be sounded out, without having to learn about exceptions.
Sure, it has those words in it. But it mixes them up with words like "Emily", "friends", "funny", "fast, "race", "down", "house".
A key to learning anything is to take it one step at a time. This author does not know that.
So, this is not a level one book. It will be useful later on when he has learned a whole lot of rules and a bunch of other words. But by then, he won't need a book with only one or two sentences to a page.
The perfect intro to reading Aug 25, 2006
After buying four or five other suggested books meant to teach children to read (including the Bob set, which we hated), I was given this Clifford set as a gift. Almost overnight, my 4.5-year-old son started reading and hasn't stopped since. I'm not sure if it's the appeal of Clifford himself, the brightly colored and helpful images, or the way the books are actually written, but my son loves these books and takes enormous pride in getting through each of one of them. I strongly recommend them for any parent hoping to interest their child in beginning reading.
