Reviews

“Cleary does a masterful job of explaining such potentially dry topics as ‘long vowel sounds with consonant digraphs’ and ‘inflectional endings’ by using comic, incongruous situations to get his point across … In his introduction, Cleary states that: ‘The bridge to literacy is one of the most important we will ever cross. It is my hope that the ‘Sounds Like Reading’ series will help young readers to hop, gallop, and skip from one side to the other!’ Mission accomplished.” (School Library Journal)
