The BookLife Readers begin with the very basics of phonetically decodable reading. Starting with the earliest step of CVC words - words comprising a consonant, a vowel and a consonant. The reader builds on this combination slowly, while following the National Literacy Learning Progression guidelines. The illustrations guide the reader, helping to deliver reading progression through the scheme in a colourful and exciting way. As a reader moves through the levels, the page numbers, level of repetition and sentence structure complexity all advance at a rate which encourages development without halting enjoyment.
