A little background about The Waverley Storybook Series:
As a writer and the mother of a small child who loves reading, I wanted a storybook series that would build upon the lessons my daughter had already learned, but I couldn’t find storybooks that completely separated the words of the story from the illustrations! So I wrote my own, and several artist friends graciously lent their professional talents.

The storybooks we have created have simple words that stand alone in very large text, which encourages beginning learners to focus on the words of the story before appreciating the pictures of the story’s adventures. The illustrations tell sweet, imaginative stories that really draw children in, and the simple language and rhythm encourages them to follow along.

Moving from lap reading to independent reading is a source of great pride for many beginning readers. I hope you and your little one enjoys these books as much as mine did.
