These books are so wonderful for a beginning reader. We did not use them in conjunction with Christian Liberty Press phonics, but they worked great with our own system. It was easy to have my daughter read the story that was in line with whatever phonetic combination we were learning. The stories are very systematic and progress at a perfect learning pace. My daughter enjoyed the pictures and characters, and never got bored with these. She even read them outside of school time. She got through all these in Kindergarten. They are very distinctly christian, which was a huge plus for me.
These readers are a MUST HAVE with the Adventures in Phonics program, but really work well in any phonics program. I LOVE how colorful the readers are and how engaged my daughter becomes in reading them. There is a review of the new words and word families on each 'lesson' and then a little story for the child to apply the new words. I like (except for a few sight words) how the readers stay with the progression in the book with the phonics....short vowel sounds, then silent e words, etc.
These readers have given my daughter such confidence. She proudly totes her reader around as her 'book' she's 'reading' (like her older sisters who are reading larger fiction works).
I supplement the program also with the AIP flash cards, the explode the code flash cards, and a sight reading flash card set to include all the 'extra' new words from each lesson. I wish I had used this phonics curriculum with all of my children! It is cost-effective, simple, and engaging. I do highly recommend it and especially these readers.
