We are delighted to introduce you to two brand new Jolly resources: Jolly Phonics Little Words Books and the Jolly Phonics Our World Nonfiction Readers!
These two new resources expand our exciting range of readers from both ends of the scale, with the Little Word Books designed as introductory readers for those just starting out, and the Our World Readers designed to follow on from our Level 4 Blue Readers.
The British English versions of these books are available to buy now, with the American English versions arriving soon.
The Jolly Phonics Little Word Books are fully decodable books for new readers. They have a very carefully controlled vocabulary and are specifically designed for children who are learning to read and write with Jolly Phonics. The text in the first two books uses only decodable regular words made up from the first group of letter sounds; the text in the next two books uses only the first and second groups of letter sounds and so on, so that the number of sounds used in the text builds up cumulatively.
Tips for teachers and parents are also included within each book.

The Jolly Phonics Our World Nonfiction Readers are fully decodable books for new readers. They have a very carefully controlled vocabulary and are specifically designed for children who are learning to read and write with Jolly Phonics.
• The text in these Purple Level Books (fifth level) uses only decodable regular words that use the letter-sound knowledge taught so far: the 42 main letter sounds and the main alternative letter-sound spellings (‹y› as in happy, the ‘hop-over ‹e›’ spellings of the long vowel sounds, ‹ay› as in day, ‹ea› as in seat, ‹y› and ‹igh› as in fly and high, ‹ow› as in low and now, ‹ew› as in dew, ‹oy› as in joy, ‹ir› and ‹ur› as in bird and turn, ‹al›, ‹au› and ‹aw› as in talk, pause and saw, soft ‹c› and soft ‹g› as in cent and gene, ‹ph› as in phonics and ‹air›, ‹ear› and ‹are› as in hair, pear and care) and a small number of tricky words (frequently used words that are not fully decodable at this stage).
• All new tricky words and alternative vowel spellings used are shown on the front inside cover. These can be used as a quick practice activity before starting the book.
• Faint type is used for silent letters, like the ‹b› in lamb.
• Comprehension questions and discussion topics are included at the end of the book. These ensure that children are not only able to read the text, but also get meaning from it.
