From the bestselling learn-to-read program comes a brand-new set of books dedicated entirely to SIGHT WORDS! First-grade edition.

Sight words, or high frequency words, are words that appear repeatedly in your children’s reading material. Knowing these words "by sight" is essential for reading speed and comprehension.

These ten books provide 30 more sight words, in slightly longer stories, to build confidence and success in the progressing reader. [CONTINUED]
