The level of your child’s reading and their age will help to determine which books are best suited for your child or student. Generally speaking, our suggested guidelines are the Dandelion Launchers are for beginner readers aged 3-4 yrs.
For example - The Dandelion Readers are for beginner readers aged 5-8 yrs. and the older catch-up readers are best suited for ages 8-14 yrs. Other factors such as the child’s or students current reading ability should be considered. If the reader is struggling at their current age level, they may need to go back to the basic foundation phonic sounds.

Synthetic Phonics teaches the reader to identify each individual sound in the word separately. Readers are then taught to blend and segment sounds in words. Then they learn to blend sounds together, the reader synthesises each sound into a word.
Decodable reading books are simply a book that a child can independently sound out the word once they have been taught the phonic sounds for that level of book.
Please notify us if you are expecting to have your order delivered during a school/term break, as some schools may not be able to take delivery during these periods. We can easily make arrangements to have your order delivered at a more suitable date e.g. at the commencement of the new term.
Written languages are codes of symbols which represent spoken language. In some scripts, the symbols may represent parts of a word. In the English Phonics Code, symbols or letters represent units of single sounds. Therefore, teaching reading with phonics helps to unlock the code for beginner readers.
The workbooks complement the reading books and align with each set with sections that also match the chapters in the older series. They offer a wide range of activities which help to develop reading, spelling, writing and comprehension. The workbooks are used mostly by schools in a classroom setting but just as suitable to reinforce the learnings in the reading books by parents at home.
