Link phonological awareness skills to children's literature and comprehension. Use the rich vocabulary from favorite children's books to improve word, syllable, and sound awareness.

The activities are suitable for whole class instruction, small groups, and individuals; preschoolers though early elementary grades; and regular and special education classrooms. There are a variety of questions at each level of learning so you can easily address individual needs in a group.

The easy-to-follow format uses the same skill sequence in each book-unit. The story content and vocabulary words are integrated into an exhaustive compilation of practice activities. Students progress to awareness of increasingly smaller units of speech:

• Word Awareness

• Syllable Awareness
- clapping syllables
- blending syllables
- deleting syllables
- reversing syllables

• Rhyming
- recognize rhymes
- discriminate rhymes
- generate rhymes

• Sound Awareness
- initial sound play
- identify and generate words beginning with the given sound
- blend monosyllable words
- blend sounds to make a word
- match initial sounds
- identify initial and final sounds of words
- substitute initial and final sounds
- segment sounds
- delete initial and final sounds
- delete sounds in blends

The lessons are based on storybooks that you supply. There are 43 book-units. Several of the books have content related to curricular topics. Some of the titles are (see the Table of Contents for a complete list):

• A Pocket for Corduroy
• If You Give a Moose a Muffin
