Fitzroy readers are graded stories introducing new sounds and special words. Why it works: Proceeds in small, simple steps. Easy to use. Systematic and complete. Starts with stories, not theories. Fun. Frequent success experiences. Teaches all essential phonics building blocks (e.g. letter sounds, digraphs ['ch', 'th', etc.], sight words & spelling rules). Avoids rare and abstruse cases that are more easily dealt with as special words. Children who have completed this level find it easy to move on to a general literature, such as magazines, newspapers and novels. Notice how these Readers look a lot like an illustrated novel. They are a great springboard for wider reading.
