The "Step Into Reading" series provides readers of all levels with engaging books appropriate for their reading skill. Step 1 books are geared towards children who know the alphabet and want to begin reading. Step 2 readers hold short, simple sentences and focus on beginning phonics skills as young children read and sound out words with help. In Step 3, stories are a little longer with fun characters and easy plots to satisfy children reading by themselves. Short paragraphs and increasingly difficult vocabulary are introduced in Step 4 as students are building their reading confidence. Step 5 storybooks provide skilled readers with chapter books. Each level features a captivating assortment of fiction and nonfiction topics, all colorfully illustrated and appealing to young readers.
