Kids will have a great time learning to read with Berenstain Bears Phonics Fun, a twelve-book program written and illustrated in full color by Jan and Mike Berenstain. Each twelve-page book features a Berenstain Bears story with a separate phonics concept.
Phonics teaches children the relationship between letters and the sounds they make. A child who has mastered these relationships has an excellent foundation for learning to read and spell. According to the National Institute of Child Health & Human Development, a child who has learned phonics has a method to recognize familiar words and “decode” unfamiliar ones.
The loving Berenstain Bear family—Mama, Papa, Sister, Brother, and Honey—will make learning these vital pre-reading skills enjoyable for parents and children. The program has been leveled by experts and takes kids through the learning process in clear steps.
Mike Berenstain lives in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, where he continues to write and illustrate wonderful new adventures for Mama, Papa, Brother, Sister, and Honey Bear.
