The Fitzroy Readers is a set of graded books which employ the Fitzroy Method - a phonic approach to reading developed over the last 3 decades.

The first Reader, A Fat Cat, uses only 13 letters. This makes it easy for small children to start reading without delay.

The first five Readers each teach one basic vowel sound: a, e, i, o and u. Repeated often, these vowels and many consonants become completely memorable.

Within Readers 1-10, special words like I, have, to, go, for… are introduced – one or two with each Reader. Children quickly learn to read simple-sounding words wherever they see them.

Reader 9 teaches the first digraph, oo as in roof. Digraphs enable children, without further teaching, to sound out whole families of words – including many they have never seen before.

By Reader 10, children are already reading simple sentences with fluency.

There are several sounding-out options available. All speech is high-quality recording. The interface is designed for young fingers and can be used by the student alone or with a tutor.

You can choose to use either System or Fitzroy typeface for the stories. The Fitzroy typeface is particularly useful for students who are learning to print letters. It has longer ascenders and descenders, and letters like ‘a’ appear the way they are usually written.

Various cosmetic changes.

Fantastic books

Just what we needed to use with our child who was struggling with the school's 'predictable text' levelled readers. A synthetic phonics approach has gotten our struggling reader reading and he loves the Fitzroy Readers because he can decode every unknown word. He finally feels successful!

Very Good...however

I am very impressed with these apps, however when the strict phonetic option is chosen, some of the letters are pronounced in the conventional way. E.G. g is pronounced “guh”. I would love to see this changed!

Fantastic book series. Great that I have found such a useful resource for the iPad. Books are fantastic and easy for child to progress through the levels. I think the series is fantastic for the price.
