Beehive Reader Review from All About Spelling

The Beehive Readers are a new reading series brought to you by the innovative spelling program All About Spelling. TOS Homeschool Crew members received a copy of Beehive Reader 1 for review.

I LOVE books, so this product was delightful to review. My six year old daughter Jessica is learning how to read and she felt like such a big girl when I handed her such a beautiful hard covered "big kid" book. The best part about the book was, she was able to read it, it was created for the early reader. We use another reading program, but the readers that go with it are a bit on the "cheap" looking side. The Beehive Reader is a beautiful hardcover book, and only costs $19.95 to purchase. The readers are part of a new series developed by All About Spelling called All About Reading. A new website for All About Reading is in development and will be available this summer.

Jessica enjoyed the Beehive Reader 1 so much, that I am considering purchasing future books. The reader is 156 pages and filled with 10 short, quality stories and beautiful illustrations.

According to the website www.BeehiveReaders.com
this is what they have to say about their product:

Phonics based, Beehive Reader 1 contains charming, beautifully illustrated stories.
Your beginning reader will delight in finding out what happens when…

…a busy cat lives in a windmill
…a sleepy bear cub takes a nap
…a grumpy duck demands a snack
…a singing bat befriends a lonely king
… a curious boy shrinks from tall to small
… and much more!
Beehive Reader 1 correlates 100% with All About Spelling Level One.

If you order the reader, they will send you information regarding when to use the reader to correlate to the spelling lesson.
The reader can also be used independently of the All About Spelling program.

If you visit the website, you can check out the book and look through select pages. Funny story, tonight I took the Beehive Reader 1 off the shelf in order to write this review and Jessica saw it as she was going to bed and she wanted to take it with her! I had to practically wrestle it from her and promise that she can have it back in the morning.
