Phonic Readers for Children
by Barbara Murray
published by Alpine Books with assistance of Universal Workshop

These four delightful little books, bound into a single volume, and printed in large clear type and illustrated with drawings by Mary Ward Thompson, are written using simple words. The words are more than simple: they are phonic. That is, they are carefully chosen to be those whose spelling keeps to the rules that children have encountered at their stage of reading. The few words in each story that advance beyond these limits are placed in a short vocabulary before it ("Words to Try" with the parent or teacher).

Educators have long debated the merits of the phonic versus the "look-and-say" or whole-word approach; the consensus seems to be that phonic principles best help children toward mastery over the tangle of English spelling.There is now also a realization that those suffering from dyslexia are best helped by phonics.

The books are graded for the first four Montessori reading levels, with covers of the appropriate colors.

From simplicity arises beauty. These stories are gently moving, and children love them.
