Superphonics: Green Storybook: Bull In A China Shop

By Gill Munton
Illustrated by Guy Parker-Rees

  • Paperback
  • £3.50

Part of a series of graded readers using the highly acclaimed Superphonics approach. 'A Bull in a China Shop' focuses on the following sounds: double consonants, e.g. 'll' as in 'bull', blended consonants, e.g. 'ng' as in 'rang' and two or three consonants together, e.g. 'lp' as in 'help, and 'sm' as in 'smash'.

This Green Storybook will help children to learn to read using Ruth Miskin's highly effective Superphonics method. There are four levels in the Storybook series - Blue (the easiest), Green, Purple and Turquoise (the hardest). Each level is linked to one of the core Superphonics books. Green Storybooks practise the sounds taught in Superphonics Book 3.



All the Storybooks are fun to read and beautifully designed and illustrated in colour.
