Product Details


Product Description

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 1-Words presents the concept of initial-sound substitution as Mouse makes new words by changing the first letter: "hat" becomes "cat," "hog" becomes "log," and so on. Jack and Jill uses rhymes and repetition to tell the story of a boy, a girl, and their dog's repeated trips up a snowy hill and sled rides down again. Lively, full-color drawings illustrate the action in both books. Large print, repetitive word use, and a predictable pattern make these titles suitable for beginning readers.

From Booklist

Gr. 1-2. From the Step into Reading Early series, this "phonics reader" gives children practice with sounds by changing the first letters in a series of words. A hardworking mouse in overalls constructs, deconstructs, and reconstructs words. For instance: "Find the word FAN. Blow away the F. Move in a V. Honk! Now it is a VAN!" Net changes to pet, ten to hen, bug to hug, and so on. Joseph illustrates the simple text with color, action, and style, using large letters forming the words as physical elements that the good-natured mouse manipulates in the pictures. A playful choice for beginning readers working with initial consonants. Carolyn Phelan

5.0 out of 5 stars This little mouse is so much fun! April 5 2002
Format:Paperback
Don't let the subtitle, "A Phonics Reader," scare you. Your kids will love this book. This action-packed, sound-effect filled, little book will delight as well as instruct. I have given this book as a gift and my friends tell me that their kids (2 and 4) ask for "mouse" again and again. They love to identify the moving letters and to repeat the new rhyming words. It is a wonderfully simple book for children who are just beginning to read on their own. I highly recommend it. I am excited to see that another book with the same character is coming out soon. I am looking forward to being able to give more "mouse" books as gifts in the future.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Rhyming Phonics Book Aug. 4 2005
By Janet Boyer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
"Mouse is busy, mouse is fast--grabbing letters as he runs past. He finds new ways to make a rhyme by switching letters every time." --from the book

Contrary to the incorrect information given by both of the Editorial Reviews, Mouse Makes Words is a Step 1 book in the Random House Step Into Reading line which means that it is geared towards children in pre-school and kindergarten. If your child knows the alphabet and is eager to begin reading, Step 1 books like Mouse Makes Words are a great start.

This Phonics Reader playfully explores initial sounds substitution and short vowel sounds by using rhyming word pairs. With its big type, easy words, picture clues, rhyme and rhythm, Mouse Makes Words is an engaging book for learning words such as net, pet, ten, hen, wig, pig, pot, cot, bug, hug, and more.

My son requests this book every once in awhile and the simplied format really helped reinforce simple word recognition, rhyming, and sounding out words.

5.0 out of 5 stars A favorite I wish I had when I was learning to read Dec 12 2007
By mom of 4 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
My daughter LOVES mouse and his books. This was our first mouse book and it got us hooked on this clever little seriers. We have bought them all and wish there were more. Mouse makes reading concepts very fun and very easy to grasp. I home school and have shown these books to my other homeschooling friends. They have all been amazed at how cheap they are and how much information they deliver in a easy fun way.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great tool for beginning readers Nov. 28 2008

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is the first book a child can read independently. It is fun and the illustrations keep children engaged. This is probably the best book in this class.
