Scholastic / Hello Reader!

Hello Readers are sight word based readers. The books cover a variety of subjects, ranging from science to history, to stories. The beginning of each book has a note to parents advising basic sight reading principles, letting children use picture cues to guess what words are, and not correcting them if they substitute a synonym for the right word (e.g. guessing "street" when the word is "road" etc.) These certainly aren't the most fascinating readers on the market but they do have a series of I Spy books which are a good way to get children involved more heavily in reading the words with a goal in mind.

Review by Lauren Shearer
Lauren Shearer writes words for fun and profit. She also makes films, but everyone knows you can't make a profit doing that. Her other hobby is consistently volunteering way too much of her time. You can read more of her reviews here.
