The DOG ON A LOG Books series are for phonics readers and dyslexic learners. They are Decodable books which means a child who has been taught the phonics rules and the limited sight words in that book can sound them out and read them. The words used reflect the inclusion of 1 to 3 new phonics rules in each step. There are five books at each step.

The chapter books are written in a chapter format with one picture in most chapters. They are longer, have more detail, and sometimes offer more complexity than the Let’s GO! Books. They’re great for practicing known and new phonics rules. They’re also just fun reading.

DOG ON A LOG Let’s GO! Books are shorter versions of DOG ON A LOG Chapter books. Let’s GO! books tell the same stories with about 8 pictures and only a few sentences per page. They’re perfect as an introduction to the new phonics rules or simply for fun reading for younger kids.

Lynne E. Jaffee, PHD, co-author: Woodcock-Johnson IV: Reports, Recommendations, and Strategies (2016), and Comprehensive Evaluations: Case Reports for Psychologists, Diagnosticians, and Special Educators (2011): In the 45 years that I have been teaching students with dyslexia, I’m always looking for reading material. Pamela Brookes has created DOG ON A LOG Chapter Books that follow an incremental, phonics-based pattern and work well with Orton-Gillingham based programs. Ms. Brookes’ books will be a great asset to educational therapists, parents, and special education teachers in their work with children and adults with dyslexia.

Arrecina Becken: My 9 year old boy loves these books! It has been so exciting for him to find books he can read. He has been telling strangers about how wonderful these books are for kids with Dyslexia. We highly recommend them.
