These High Interest Phonics books are designed to equip older, struggling learners with the phonic foundations they need to become fluent readers. All too often, older readers have gaps in their phonic knowledge and skills which prevents them from making further progress. These series plug the gaps by engaging older readers in age-appropriate, appealing stories while introducing step-by-step phonics withincontrolled, decodable texts. Once the teacher has taught the target phonics in each book, the student can read the book successfully and independently! This phonic structure ensures that the students develop their reading skills as they progress through the series. Students will grow in confidence, motivation and self esteem, and will be able to tackle increasingly complex texts.

The Talisman Series consists of ten exciting quest stories, and is aimed at students who need to learn to read and spell the difficult alternative vowel spellings in English. The 16 full-color pages in each book will engage and stimulate the reader. Starting with the sound ae', each book introduces one phoneme and its alternative spellings, while engaging the readers in an action-packed quest.

The Talisman Series follows the same phonic sequence as the Rescue Series and can be used in parallel. This series also includes a comprehensive 150 page reproducible workbook which contains reading, spelling and comprehension activities for each of the stories.
