The Doodling Dragon has some new friends...
Knitting Knights and Whistling Whales!
Multi-letter phonogram books coming in 2017
Denise Eide is teaming up again with Ingrid Hess, the artist who illustrated Doodling Dragons: An ABC Book of Sounds, to bring you two new children's books!
Whistling Whales and Knitting Knights introduce children to the sounds of 48 multi-letter phonograms, building on the foundation of single-letter phonograms introduced in Doodling Dragons. Ingrid is working on illustrations for the text this winter, and both books are scheduled for release in 2017!
Whistling Whales will introduce the phonograms taught in Foundations B, while Knitting Knights introduces the remaining multi-letter phonograms, which are taught in Foundations C. Denise's playful, funny verses and Ingrid's whimsical illustrations are sure to entertain and delight young children while laying a foundation for reading! Along with the A-Z phonograms taught in Doodling Dragons, these new books help children encounter all the sounds of English and the 74 basic phonograms we use to write them in words.
These books are a great introduction to the multi-letter phonograms and their sounds for any young child! They can also be used with Foundations B and C as another fun way to discover and enjoy the sounds of each phonogram.
Here are some black and white drafts, for those of you who would like a preview of what's in the works!
We look forward to sharing the final, full-color, hardbound books with you soon!
