Literacy is so very important. I see how my own grandson struggles with his reading in first grade. I keep asking myself, "Why?" What is the root cause of his struggles? Is it unrealistic expectations for first grade students? Is it some genetic or environmental issue? One thing for certain is the need for educators and family members to troubleshoot and find ways to help our children succeed in reading. 

I have created two early readers for my grandson, Clemens.  I would love to share some of their contents with you.


Both of these books are written at K/1st Grade Level with a 210-400 Lexile. They each have over 30 sight words for children to learn. The books come with assessments and a link for online testing and scoring. Here are the links for each book from Amazon.
