I like these flip-a-word books. They are easy and fun. This one uses the -ig and -ug and -at families. The flipping of the pages back and forth and the fun of seeing how this changes the images makes it more fun. The extended word bank at the end could lead to some additional fun sentences and maybe even a story using these words. The word lamb could be a pause until you use the picture clue.

The adorable illustrations and funny sentences themed around 3 word families per book make this series a great one for an emerging reader.

I like that the hug was sweet and she gave her a hug. And the bug had enough water and food. And I liked that a mug was alive! 'Cause it was funny.

This is a really cute series for wee ones who want to start the very basics of reading, after they've learned their letters. Each page shows a word ending sound, such as 'ig' or 'at' and then has cut-outs as you turn the page so that different letters begin the word. Each page has a big colorful illustration of that word. I would have given it five stars, but I thought some of the illustrations did not look much like what they were supposed to illustrate!

Excellent beginning to read book for new decoders - kids who are just figuring out how word families like -ig, -ug, and -at work. Really fun cut out pages and lots of different ways for the reader to practice the sound families. A hit with my newly reading son!
A great book for kids who are just learning to read. The book focuses of three "families" of words and shows how letter combinations make the same sounds in different words. Lots of rhyming words and great practice for beginning readers.

What do a Pig and a Wig have in common? Their end sounds, of course! And you know what that means? Time for another Flip-a-Word book!

I think these are a must for a learn-to-read library. At 3 1/2, my son was more or less reading this to me.

Now reading these with my daughter at 3.5, I sing them like Wonder Red.
My son is learning to read with Hooked on Phonics & this book was recommended as additional reading. It was great because most of the words he already knew & could read by himself.
