Charge into Reading Decodable Reading System

Grounded in the Science of Reading and designed in consultation with Orton-Gillingham trained literacy specialist Marisa Ware, the Charge into Reading Decodable Readers take the guesswork out of learning to read!

Starting with short vowel sounds, each stage in the Charge into Reading Decodable Book Series builds on the previous stage.

Compelling storylines paired with a strict scope and sequence make for a series that children won't just be ABLE to read, but that they will actually WANT to read.

What can your child read today?

What is decodable to one child may not be to another. Ask yourself the following questions:

  • Does your child recognize uppercase and lowercase letters?
  • Does your child know their letter sounds?
  • Can your child blend (sound out) 2- and 3-letter words, or are they getting ready to?

We never want to sell you a book you don't need. Use our reading assessment to find the right books for your child.

UFLI Aligned

Every decodable book series needs to follow a trusted scope and sequence, and ours is most closely aligned with UFLI Foundations. That's why we're so pleased to announce that Charge Mommy Books is now listed on the UFLI Foundations Decodable Text Guide.

But our books are not meant to be used only with UFLI. Because they focus on a single sound or skill at a time, they can easily be used alongside any curriculum.

Using humor to engage new readers

It has been my experience that many books that strive to teach reading lack consistent and enjoyable plots. As an author of hundreds of published children's books and an editor to thousands, I understand how to prioritize story while following the strict rules required by a decodable reading system. The words that appear in each of our decodable readers adhere to the goals of that stage of books without sacrificing plot, grammar, or early sentence structure. If a story doesn't make sense, or doesn't make us laugh, we scrap it and start again.
