Phonic Books: Amber Guardians

Action packed from start to finish, these ten exciting stories feature Finn, a well-known character from the Magic Belt series. In this series, a chance discovery of an ancient necklace in a dusty bazaar leads Finn and his friends on an incredible quest.

Carefully written with a higher text to illustration ratio, these longer stories (26 pages) build reading stamina and motivate older readers. Designed to bridge the gap between decodable and mainstream books, these stories are a stepping stone toward having the confidence to understand meaning purely from text.
