At Flying Start Books we believe literacy is the key to success in life, so we’re passionate about giving children a flying start by launching them into literacy. This core belief is at the heart of our Red Rocket Readers Series.
Developed by New Zealand reading specialist and author Pam Holden, this exciting, award-winning reading program offers more than 600 illustrated fiction and photographic non-fiction titles, at meticulously graded levels.
Our new Decodable Explorers titles offer a structured approach to literacy and are scaffolded by strong and effective tools at the Foundation and Pre-Reading levels to build alphabet knowledge and phonemic awareness. The original Alphabet Explorers set is now joined by two new sets, Blend Explorers and Sound Explorers.
Decodable Explorers are aligned with SOR and Letters & Sounds. Readers will grow in confidence as they progress from the first book to the last, acquiring new skills and putting them to work in an authentic way.
All Red Rocket Readers titles feature colorful, entertaining illustrations that support the text, launch oral discussion and develop student comprehension. The classic story structure (tension, climax and resolution) ensures children will want to engage with the texts.
