Phonic Books – Complete Series

Students age 8-14 will have fun reading up to eight exciting 10 or 12 book series featuring one continuous story in each series, while practicing reading new sound-spellings with every book!


The Magic Belt Series is 12 fantasy/adventure books for older students who would benefit from a beginning phonics program. This series starts at CVC/CVCC level text, then builds up reading skills in a step-by-step phonic progression, allowing practice and consolidation at each level.


The Totem Series starts at CVC/CVCC level text, then builds up reading skills in a step-by-step phonic progression, allowing practice and consolidation at each level. To promote interest, the series features one continuous story when read in sequence, with the conclusion in the final book.


The Talisman 1 Series includes 10 fantasy/adventure stories for students ages 8 through 14 that introduce more alternative spellings for the vowel sounds: ae, oe, er, ow, oi, oo, ie, or, air, and ar.


This series covers the essential phonic foundations a catch-up pupil will need, starting at CVC/CVCC level. It will appeal to both boys and girls. The Alba Series follows the same phonic progression as the Totem Series.


Rescue series was created for older students, and these books can be used to either teach or reinforce new and already learned decoding skills. Book 1 starts with a focus on the spellings ai, ay, a, a-e, ea and ey.


The Phonic Books Treasure Chest contains eight of the popular Phonic Books series along with their eight workbooks.


The Talisman 2 Series continues the fantasy/adventure stories of the Talisman 1 Series, and overlaps the alternative vowel and consonant spellings and Latin suffixes of Titan's Gauntlets, including additional variant spellings.


Titans Gauntlets is a set of ten imaginative stories with fantastic illustrations. It introduces further alternative vowel and consonant spellings and common Latin suffixes.


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.


Talisman Cards are a collection of ten decks of beautifully illustrated cards students can use to play a fast-paced game that gives them plenty of phonic skills practice.
