Reading is a neurologically complex skill. So, it isn’t surprising that many children find learning to read difficult. Make learning to read more fun with award-winning Budding Reader eBooks, arguably the easiest learn-to-read book series on the market. These research-based eBooks were developed in consultation with Cecilia Minden, Ph.D., the former Director of Language and Literacy at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. They were illustrated by artist, Doug Oglesby, winner of one Emmy, five Emmy nominations, and three international awards from the Broadcast Designers Association.

Budding Reader eBooks use an innovative format to ease children into reading. Using research-based best practices identified by the National Reading Panel, each of the five Budding Reader eBook sets (one for each short vowel sound) tells an original story over the course of ten books. Previewing a book dramatically improves reading comprehension, so Book 1 in each set is a wordless picture book which introduces the story through colorful illustrations. Repetition aids brain development, so the story is retold in Books 2-10 with an ever-expanding vocabulary. By repeating words and gradually adding new ones, Budding Reader eBooks help new readers (even reluctant ones) experience success from the very start.

In total, the Budding Reader eBook series introduces more than 60 simple words including dozens of common sight words. Learning is reinforced with free companion writing worksheets (available at buddingreader.com) which provide a multisensory experience and enable children to practice both reading and writing. A free parent guide with tips for working with new readers is also available on the website.

The first set in the series, Cat and Rat, introduces the short “a” vowel sound and is designed to be a child’s very first reader. With only eleven words (and, at, can, cat, look, rat, see, stop, that, the, you) introduced over the course of ten books, Cat and Rat aims to provide even the most reluctant reader with a positive first introduction to reading.

Series:
Set 1: Cat and Rat (Short a; 11 words)
Set 2: Wit and Kit (Short i; 17 words)
Set 3: Bugs (Short u; 18 words)
Set 4: Hop! (Short o; 18 words)
Set 5: Hens (Short e; 22 words)

For every eBook set sold, Budding Reader donates one to a child in need. One for You. One for the World. A Better World with Every Purchase.

Gold Mom’s Choice Award Winner: The Mom’s Choice Awards has named Cat and Rat among the very best in family-friendly media, products and services.

About the author

Like nearly 40% of children*, Melinda Thompson’s child found learning to read challenging. Later diagnosed with dyslexia, a common learning disability, her child struggled to read even the easiest phonics readers. Unable to find truly simple learn to read books, Melinda set out on a mission to create them. She pulled together an amazing team: a literacy consultant with Harvard credentials, a co-author who previously worked at Walt Disney Television, and an illustrator who earned one Emmy and five Emmy nominations for his art and graphic design work.

Together, they created the Budding Reader eBook series, award winning researched based eBooks designed to be the very first books for a child to read. Used at the right time in a child’s development, these extra easy learn to read books are useful for all emergent readers, and especially valuable for struggling readers. By gradually introducing simple vocabulary, these eBooks were designed to provide even a young child with a successful first introduction to reading. Learning is reinforced with free companion writing worksheets (available at buddingreader.com) which provide a multisensory experience and enable children to practice both reading and writing. A free parent guide with tips for working with new readers is also available on the website.

Melinda is happy that each of the five Budding Reader eBook sets (Set 1: Cat and Rat; Set 2: Wit and Kit; Set 3: Bugs; Set 4: Hop! and Set 5: Hens) has won Gold in the Mom’s Choice Awards. Even more important to her are the five star reviews these simple learn to read books have received from teachers, reading specialists, homeschoolers, and parents of children with learning disabilities. Now preschoolers, kindergarteners, and even reluctant readers are easily learning the short vowel sounds and dozens of common sight words. A former Madison Avenue advertising executive, Melinda holds a master’s degree from Northwestern University.


*Learning to read is often a challenge for the 15-20% of children with dyslexia (International Dyslexia Association), the 11% with attention disorders (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), the 5-16% of children with sensory processing disorder (Sensory Processing Disorder Foundation) as well as children with hearing loss and/or other metal/learning disabilities.
