Book It!

Keep your early readers flipping those pages with these sets of beautifully illustrated books by reading specialist and early-childhood educator Kyla Ryman. As beginning readers often comprehend concepts much more complex than their literary abilities allow, each book begins with vibrant illustrations by Cecile Dyer, Nathalie Trovato, and Sara Woster that appeal to their conceptual understanding. Stories are then printed with simple, easy-to-repeat words and sentences to encourage linguistic mastery through repetition. Printed with vegetable-based ink, these books do not emit any volatile organic compounds (VOCs), so you can be at ease as your rookie reader revisits these stories over and over again.

Book Set 1 includes nine books that have one, two, or three words per page accompanied by vivid watercolors and line drawings with an engaging play theme, by artist, Cecile Dyer. Book Set 2 includes seven books full of lush cut paper images with an environmental theme by artist Nathalie Trovato. One to six words per page build up the structural complexity of the text. Book Set 3 includes eight books for the earliest reader featuring oil paintings with a city and country theme by artist Sara Woster. The language ranges from simple one word text to two short sentences per page in a consistent pattern.

Made in New York City.

I love the illustrations! Bonus that it's VOC free. Thanks for making it in America.

This is great, proving the point that there is no reason to outsource manufacturing to China. Supporting American creative efforts by providing jobs right here at home is benefitting all of us!


I'd be interested in the price point before knowing if I like it or not

You can never have too many books for children. I like these because it might spark an actual interest in something instead of driving a deep desire to own and ride a unicorn.

Love the different mediums and diversity if the illustrations, while they still clearly depict the text. Using picture cues is as important in early reading as sound/ symbol relationships and will assist the child in developing this skill.
