The Magic Belt Series includes 12 decodable reading books for "catch-up" students who would benefit from starting a phonics program from the beginning. Age-appropriate quest stories with fabulous illustrations take the students from CVC and CVCC word level text through to consonant digraphs with a separate book for each grapheme: sh, ch, th, ck, ng, wh, le and includes suffixes -ed and -ing. An invaluable reading resource for older, beginner readers. Interest age 8-14. Reading level: kindergarten. Written by Tami Reis-Frankfort & illustrated by Drew Wilson.
