Good motivator for an unmotivated reader Aug 11, 2006
Nora Gaydos' series 'Now I'm Reading' has really helped our unmotivated reader get going with reading. PROS - stickers (multiples for each of the books) - fun stories (too often, early reader stories are dull, but I was actually flipping ahead on 3-4 of these books to see how things would resolve.) - Good illustrations (nothing Newberry Award worth, but they really compliment the story, good colors, fun characters.) - Your reader can't cheat by 'reading' the pictures - MOST IMPORTANTLY, Nora does an excellent job of consistently hammering home the specific sound, letter combo, or phonic rule the book is focused on. (Usually on the first read, by the end of the book, my reader was sight reading the focused on letter combo or rule)
CONS(only because I have to list at least one to be 'fair and balanced') - MORE STORIES!!! Keep writing Nora...your approach hits the nail on the head for early readers. We need more of your work.
Great for the beginning reader Aug 3, 2005
My child will be in 1st grade this year and this is our third set of reading books by Nora Gaydos. The size of the books is very kid-friendly and the amount on each page is just what the early reader can handle. He feels like he is making progress and it is not too hard so we don't encounter too much frustration which is common with his other books.
Ease into reading the fun way! Oct 8, 2004
I cannot say enough good things about the "Now I'm Reading" series by Nora Gaydos. Starting with the 2 level one books and going through to the level four pack you have 50 books that are just right for your beginning reader. Each book is 10 pages, meaning that your child has 500 pages of simple yet fun, attractive, entertaining, and educational learning at their fingertips. Each book focuses on a different sound, pattern, or skill and each level builds on the last. There is a lot of repetition of the words and sounds in the text which helps build word and sound recognition. My son learned to read with these books when he had just turned 4 and continues to love them now as he nears 5. They have given him a great base which he is easily applying to all kinds of other books. He loves these books because they are small, funny, easy to get through in one sitting, and enjoyable time after time. Sometimes he is distracted from the reading due to the very cute pictures, but one thing is certain, he will want to read them again and again. Love of reading and learning are definitely things that these books promote! What more could a parent want?
