Twisters rhymers series by Christine Moorcroft

cover image

Evans, 2010.
(Age: 5-6) This is a set of readers that uses rhyming words to tell the stories. They would be useful for children to read after they have learnt that some sounds sound the same, even though they are spelt differently. Each story has examples of this. In Now, now brown cow, for example, children will learn that the 'ow' in 'brown' and 'cow' makes the same sound as the 'ou' in 'found' and 'ground'.
The emphasis in the series is on producing a humorous story, that is illustrated with bright drawings, and which has appealing content for the young reader.
