The Wind and the Sun by Ms Cynthia Rider

A story-based approach to phonics practice helping children to read with confidence. The Wind and the Sun is a traditional tale, retold by Cynthia Rider, where the Wind and the Sun have a competition to see who is the strongest. The Wind and the Sun is for children in Year 1/Primary 2. This is a highly attractive, illustrated text with a humorous story told with rhyme. The particular phonic focus (ai, oo) is reinforced throughout the text. Each children's book includes notes on the inside back cover to support use in guided group reading sessions.
