My First Reading Book is a tool to help teach beginner readers how to read. It is a good next step for children who have just mastered the alphabet and sounds of each letter. Intentionally, there are pictures in this book, instead the focus is upon the words themselves, to keep distractions to a minimum. It starts with some 3 letter words, then moves on to 4 and then 5 letter words, then finishes by using most of the words in short, complete sentences. It's perfect for helping them to 'sound out' words and learn by memorization a few very common simple words that are used frequently in the English language. Watch how proud children will be at mastering a new skill, reading!
Born in the lush and beautiful state of Washington, author Amber Richards has always been surrounded by inspiration. She has been writing and creating for as long as she can remember and today still calls the Pacific Northwest home. Amber's books span a multitude of topics, but all have one thing in common. Her love of nature, children and family are the basis of each, and her passion is apparent on every page. Most recently she has added watercolor artist to her catalogue of talents, and needs only to gaze out her window for daily motivation. When Amber isn't breathing life into a new book or painting, she is surrounded by a loving family. She is the proud mother of two children and enjoys every moment she spends with her five grandchildren.
