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