The Little Blossom Stories series utilizes curriculum based fiction to ease children into reading. Each book in this series repeats a combination of sight words and short-vowel words to raise recognition and confidence. Original illustrations help guide readers through the text. Cecilia Minden, PhD, a literacy consultant and former director of the Language and Literacy program at Harvard Graduate School of Education created the text and format. Books in this series include author biography, phonetics, and teaching guides.
