Synopsis

Gran on a Fan Silly Short Vowels by Kevin Bolger

Written by elementary reading specialist Kevin Bolger, these short, wacky comics are designed to teach beginning readers the five short vowel sounds and will make anyone a fan of phonics. Zany, graphic illustrations from award-winning artist Ben Hodson and carefully controlled text make Gran on a Fan perfect for both beginners just learning to decode and for older or reluctant readers who need a refresher in foundational phonics rules. Readers who are fans of Gran on a Fan can also brush up on their long vowel sounds with the companion book, Lazy Bear, Crazy Bear. Correlates to the Common Core State Standards in English Language Arts

Reviews
