Welcome to the Wonderful World of Reading Sight Word eBooks
Something New is Coming to Kickstarter!
After a break from writing and illustrating, Natalie and I are at it again. Having found new inspiration -we are really excited about this new project. This new book is going to be amazing! This time around we will be doing things a little differently (for the better). With your help we will publish this as a hard cover book and bring a new character, named “Caddy”, come to life. Caddy will inspire young girls to think about science and technology under a new light. Not only will this book be available as a hard cover, but also as an eBook and in braille!
Natalie and I illustrated and published several early reader books when she was 5 years old. She is now 9 and although her interests have changed, she still draws every single day! So this new project is intended for girls ranging from ages 6 to 106. Natalie beautifully illustrates and explains things the way that SHE sees them, this time introducing a new technology in an interesting way, that her young peers can appreciate and relate too.

Teaching Sight Words With Pictures
Did you know that many young learners think in pictures! Little ones often visualize what they are attempting to learn to help solidify the information in their memory banks! Think about the last time you needed to get somewhere you hadn’t been before. Even if you used written directions instead of a pictorial map, you probably had a number of visual markers such as unusual sights or signs to help you learn how to get there. Presenting children with illustrations of sight words along with their print versions helps them make important connections between the object and the word. Printing the words on a worksheet shortly after reading our colorfully illustrated books can go a long way! Flashcards or posters with a colorful picture and the word written under it are excellent sight word teaching tools. In addition, parents can have children draw their own pictures of each word on the same page to help them link the print with the visual. Our beautifully illustrated sight word ebooks are the perfect tool for introducing these words.
