Unwrapping Some Illustrations 

The Book

The Princess and the Pea is a classic fairy tale that is a love story with intriguing characters and a plot that will keep kids engaged until the very end of the story.  This re-telling, refreshing, retake of the classic enables readers to not only enjoy the tale but incorporates ways to understand phonic skills and become more proficient readers.  

The book includes interactive activities which allow kids to practise skills which will enable them to identify letters and sounds thus allowing them to read independently more successfully.  

I love the whimsical illustrations.  They are colourful, vibrant and detailed.  They visually make the text come alive.  Fairy-tale phonics is part of series of classic fairy tales for beginning readers and the book includes guidance for teachers/facilitators/caregivers to help them disclose the content for early learners resulting in less stress and worry.  This would be a great asset in a classroom setting or if one is homeschooling their children.  I suggest that the book be presented in stages as the book focuses on a lot of phonics at one sitting which could overwhelm some novice readers.  I recommend this book.
