I See Sam Little Books

You can see a Flash Demo here. Download a Scope and Sequence here.
My tester at the Bentz Test Laboratory was at the perfect place to start Level One (he knows his letter and sounds and is beginning to blend them well). You should have seen his face when I showed him an entire box of "real books" for him to read!
The books are illustrated well - and are engaging to the early reader. I liked the extra prompts in small letters at the bottom of the page - my tester loved the smiley faces. I like that we have a whole new library as we are learning to read, and my tester likes seeing how much he can read!
This is from their description:
