Decoding is the most fundamental skill for students to master when learning to read

Decodable books are an important tool for students learning to read. They provide support for phonics instruction, build confidence, reinforce reading skills, and support reading comprehension. Our decodable texts are the best decodable book sets available.

They use a limited set of phonetic sounds and sight words that correspond to the phonics skills being taught. Our printable eBooks and physical reader sets match the learner's skill level. They create a supportive environment for practicing word decoding and building fluency.
