Introduction
These interestingly written stories in the Stepping Forward series are designed to help beginning readers read independently by finding that reading a book is enjoyable, satisfying, and worthwhile. Careful attention has been given to vocabulary and sentence length to make them appealing to a first-grade student.

This series has been divided into steps. Each step is slightly more advanced, to be used as children increase their reading skills.†
Step One books have extremely simple vocabulary for the very youngest readers.
Step Two books have very simple vocabulary for very young readers.
Step Three books reinforce long vowel concepts.
Step Four focuses on reinforcing consonant digraphs.

In the beginning stages of learning to read, some children may benefit from hearing a story read to them before they try to master it themselves. This may be done by working through the book together, page by page, or by reading the whole book to them before they begin to read. Many children, however, will not need this help, and will enjoy the challenge and satisfaction of reading books on their own.

Because these books have been written for children who are learning to read, we encourage adults to not give opportunity for preschool children to memorize these stories, since that would hinder their value.

Giving children enough practice in reading is crucial to their mastering the art. Therefore, having them read the right booksóand lots of themócan be of great value. Stepping Forward stories are designed to aid children in becoming goodóand interestedóreaders. These books are ideal for independent reading by primary children at school and at home.

The books have durable paper covers and contain much repetition and many illustrations.
