About the Little Angel Readers®:
  • Readers in the LITTLE ANGEL READERS series teach letter-sound relationships systematically, beginning with the easiest letter sounds.

  • Over 90 phonograms (letter-sound combinations) are taught. Phonograms are taught in a systematic order so students can see the regularity in the English language. All phonograms needed to read English are taught.

  • Word drill pages provide practice in decoding words containing the letter-sound. Daily word drills build accuracy and fluency.

  • Stories with phonetically-controlled vocabulary follow each word drill page. The stories provide practice in decodong words in context and build comprehension skills.

  • Child appealing stories include Catholic family life, Bible and saint stories, and fables and folktales to build Christian character.

  • Review pages are included at regular intervals.

  • Four softcover readers, 9 x 6 size, color illustrations, average length 80 pages.

  • Large type size throughout the series is easy on young readers' eyes.
