All About Reading: Adventures in Reading with Zigzag Zebra



I was honored to have the great folks at All About Learning Press send me a copy of Adventures in Reading with the Zigzag Zebra (we just call him Ziggy!!). Its awesome to get a product that not only you are joyful to get but your kid is! That shows something great in the way AALP is able to engage kids. 


As many of my readers know my family loves All About Reading and All About Spelling. The spelling program was a huge God send to our family. I was struggling so hard with my oldest son in providing a way that he could learn. I prayed and prayed for God to help me. Also at this time DS1 had been diagnosed with CAPD. I needed a lot to help me. I was so blessed when a friend said the name that sent me on an immediate internet search for the company! Man was it great. They are wonderful. So I am a PROUD supporter of All About Learning Press. They helped save my homeschool!!

So my smallest son uses All About Reading Level 1. We went through and completed Pre - Level 1 and it was great in helping give him a great start to his ABC's. Level 1 has challenged him a little more. I was needing something that would still help him have fun in the struggles of what he is finding challenging. I needed something that was able to be fun to help him stay engaged. Gladly, I wasn't the only one thinking this way! They had me covered. We are on step 13 in Level 1. These games are great to help reinforce the skills being taught. The best thing for me was that the book was full color. I've bought so many file folder books and then had to come home and color them... Its a huge task and undertaking. AALP understood that homeschool mothers time is precious and helped us out by already coloring it. You just rip out of the book. Trim to fit onto the file folder. Then glue and your complete!!! Game ready!!!! 




 Level 1 helps with blending, counting syllables and recognizing vowels and consonants and with lots of opportunity to review with the Phonogram cards and Word cards All About Reading is a very complete program! This is so fun for DS2. I love watching him grab Ziggy for our lessons eager to learn and have his pal beside him.


The book goes with All About Reading Level 1.
