This book contains brilliant, clearly thought through resources for adult learners who struggle with reading, of which there is an ever increasing number. I use it frequently for just such learners in literacy classes and several of them have commented on how useful, and appropriate, the resources are. The comprehensiion and writing questions following each story allow the learners to put the theory of synthetic phonics into practice.

I have been using these stories with adult learners and have found them invaluable. They feature scenarios that learners can relate to and the accompanying activities are great too. Feedback from learners was very positive as so often struggling adult learners are presented with material designed for children. I particularly liked the stories in Section Two where we could focus on a particular sound, and as I would usually photocopy the sheets for learners having the sound identified at the bottom of the sheet, as well as well as in the contents, made quick copying for rushed teacher easy. Quite honestly I don't know what I did without them.
