If you ask me, homeschool moms can never have enough easy readers
for their little ones. During kindergarten through second grade,
I have my children read books aloud every day. The library doesn't
always have exactly what I am looking for, so it's nice to know
there are other options out there, like the Kaleidoscope Collection
early reader series from Hameray Publishing.
As the website says, "The Kaleidoscope Collection is a 150-book
series of Leveled Readers written by a team of experienced Teacher
Trainers, Teacher Leaders, Literacy Coaches, Reading Specialists,
and Reading Recovery Teachers, under the editorial guidance of
Joy Cowley , one of the most well-loved and respected children's
authors in the world."
Whether your children prefer books with photography or illustrations,
Hameray offers a medley of early readers from which to choose.
The stories are about situations and events children can relate
to. The readers my daughter and I reviewed were about having a
big brother, playing with water balloons, losing a tooth, and eating
healthy foods--all of which my daughter has experienced!
Educational perks include word count, which is shown on the back
cover, and reading levels, which are provided on the website. Also,
a variety of ethnic backgrounds is portrayed, which I think is
another positive feature of these early readers.
I encourage you to check out these books from Hameray Publishing.
There is surely something to please every early reader in your
