Book 3's engagingly illustrated stories include: Kids Need Pets, What's the Fuss?, Day Care for Dogs, A Fish That Can Fly!, and Kate and The Ten-Speed Bike.
Introductory exercises teach word families and vocabulary, while follow-up questions develop students' understanding of the stories and encourage their reasoning abilities. Drawings accompany many of the new words to help students understand the vocabulary. After each story, students can complete illustrations by adding their own drawings.
A companion series that follows the same phonetic progression as the first 4 books of the Explode The Code program, Beyond The Code can also be used independently as a supplement to any beginning reading program.
