Summary expansion
The readers are based on the importance of teaching children to read through whole words framed in short sentences; using words that come from the child's own background and experience; controlling the nature and number of new words used on each page; and using books printed in bold, clear, well-spaced type, accompanied by closely-related illustrations. This reader introduces singular and plural nouns and builds them into simple three-word sentences; examples illustrated with small silhouette drawings
