Description

A Duck in a Sock is the first book in a series designed for shared reading between a child learning to read and an experienced reader. The stories have special features to help a child with dyslexia or another language-based learning difficulty find reading success.
Meg and Greg are hanging out for the summer doing what ten-year-olds do—helping an injured duckling, finding a lost pet fish, saving ranch animals from a wildfire and catching a wandering sloth! Jump inside to join Meg and Greg on their adventures.

Editorial Reviews

“There are many books focusing on leveled reading, but Meg and Greg: A Duck in a Sock is a series with a difference...The sharing of the reading between an experienced reader and the child allows for the inclusion of more complex text on the buddy reader's page and a lower reading level with a phonogram focus on the kid's page. This allows for a richer reading experience and a guided learning experience for the child. Highly Recommended.”

— CM: Canadian Review of Materials

“Brings new energy to the task of learning to read.”

— Kirkus Reviews

“The stories offer both flashes of humor and plenty of action to drive the instructional intent.”

— Booklist

“This primer should appeal to phonics stalwarts and phonics learners...Art, drawn in a heavy ink line, helps readers focus on labeled objects and voice-balloon content.”

— Publishers Weekly

“A unique approach to high-interest texts for reluctant burgeoning readers, this book offers phonics fun wrapped in serious research-based success.”

— School Library Journal
