Bundles will periodically change most likely. This one has 22 titles, selected to coordinate with the themes in our Let Me Read: Step 2 curriculum. The bundle contains levelled readers on various topics. (Each lesson section for Step 2 is based on a general theme for the week. You certainly can read your own choices of books and readers but we have listed a bundle to help those of you who want suggestions.) Use each book to reinforce words that the child already knows and to learn new words by context of the picture on the page or what fits in a sentence as you pause in reading to and with your child. Suggestion: Your child reads one page; you read the next; then your child reads again and so on.

- How Do Apples Grow?

This bundle provides one title for each theme week of our Step 2 curriculum except for 4 themes where you can easily find a book by yourself to match. Those 4 themes are farm animals, Christmas, Easter, and a baking theme (in other words, please provide a recipe book for your child to read words from for that theme).
We reserve the right to substitute titles if necessary for ones of equal or greater value or refund you the difference.
