"Could this new series be the most systematic, comprehensive and effective series of illustrated graded readers for children ever produced"
Lee and Pat is the first book in the Word by Word series of illustrated, graded English readers for English-speaking children and children learning English as a second or foreign language. In this first early reader, we meet the teacher, Lee, Pat and their very clever dog Kim. This dog is so clever he can even READ what the children write!
The story is told using just 17 different keywords + 3 names of characters. These most commonly used key words are frequently and systematically repeated throughout the book in order to ensure effective learning.
All the details in the book are revealed in language (words and structure) that has been rigorously selected to be as simple and understandable as possible for young readers.
