Attention Parents: This is a Dolch sight book with a story that your child will actually enjoy. It may be gross, but kids love this stuff, and that's the point!
I originally wrote this book for my son, a first grader, who was struggling with sight words and reading speed.
The sight word books, decodable word books, early reader books, and flash cards they offered him at school were boring, which made it a challenge to get him excited about reading.
So I decided to write a series of children's books using sight words but with stories about the things I heard him and his friends laughing about.
It worked! My son was able to read my Billy Bad sight word stories with speed and confidence. And because he was laughing I knew his reading comprehension was improving.
This book is written using mostly Dolch sight words and a few other words that are easily decodable.
Unlike most sight word books and decodable word books, Billy Bad's sight word books have stories that will capture the attention of early readers and make them laugh.
When kids enjoy the stories they read they fall in love with reading. I hope your child enjoys these silly (and gross) sight word books as much as my son does.
