{ Review + Giveaway } Jo's Early Readers

Jo's Early Readers is a series of short stories developed by Writer, Joanna Wong, based on phonetic rhymes and repetitions, with some moral values infused. How great !


The series comes in a set of 10 books;
- Little Baby Bob
- A Snail in a Pail
- Ming the King
- A Star In A Jar
- The big Fat Cat
- A Man On The Moon
- Jay, Clay And Ray
-  The Fun Farm
- Sue And Her Blue Shoes
- The Little Toy Shop

 
One Activity Book and  One Colouring Pad


On top of reading the book by itself, if you have purchased Pen Pal Whizz, it's compatible with it ! Good for the little ones who are learning how to read. Pen Pal Whizz would come  in handy ! Read my review here.


One of our favourite among all, a character building book "Jay, Clay And Ray " ! A story about how a bullied underprivileged boy turned a bully into a good boy by covering up the latter's bad behaviour with a white lie.

A sample page of Jay, Clay And Ray

The short story was written in a catchy rhyme style. Each page as we read, I got Xav to point out the words that rhymes. In this instance, it's words ending with "ay".

As we finished reading each page, for instance page 3, I played a memory game with him as well. I got him to recall what were the rhyming words he had spotted earlier in the previous pages. It's accumulative as we read on. He got to list out all the rhyming words on the previous pages and so on. Level of difficulty gets higher as we read on, the list of words get longer. Some prompting were given to him when he could not recall.

Here's a quick glance into activities in the Activity book.

Level 1 - Beginners

Level 2 - Intermediate

Level 3 - Independent Readers
The series is highly recommended for children Age 3 and above.

I encourage my kiddos to read by letting them to choose one of the read from their stash of readers and be an audience to hear them read aloud. It helps to encourage reading when they get to make decisions on their own (choose their own read), and having myself as their supportive audience. This boosts family bonding times and confidence for the kiddos to pick up reading.

The only way to encourage my boy to read is to start off by reading to him first. Actually he can only picture read now so it's good to have simple wordings books for him to learn reading

Awesome book set.
Bedtime reading has became part of my girls' routine. It not only helps them to settle down for the night. it's also a great bonding session for the siblings where they share their thoughts about the story which they have just read.

Thanks for the awesome giveway. :)

i encourage my girl to read by using loud and varying tones and vocals, as well as assuming lively dialogue by the characters in story, crazy, big actions help keep her hooked on the story.

I read daily to my son since young and I think it helps to a lot if I choose the right books, I read aloud and make the story interesting and lots of q & a during the session. He may be able to read now but I believe he will love this set. Blogaaholic@gmail.com
