Story Friends at-a-glance

Description

Part of the Story Friends™ language and literacy intervention program for 4- to 6-year-old children, this storybook set contains 26 full-color illustrated books for use in small-group intervention with children at risk for reading difficulty. Organized around two themes—Jungle Friends and Forest Friends—these durable books are filled with colorful illustrations, likeable characters, rhyming text, and lift flaps that encourage interaction as young children participate in Story Friends.

Fun, engaging, and effective, Story Friends is a language intervention program for 4- to 6-year-old children at risk for reading difficulties. Through 26 interactive animal-themed storybooks and lively, engaging audio recordings, Story Friends effectively improves oral language and vocabulary development—two of the most important predictors of later reading success. With colorful illustrations, rhyming text, interactive story components, and appealing narration from Wanda the Word Wolf, children strengthen other important skills, such as solving problems, empathizing, working together, and making friends with others who are different. And because Story Friends is a natural fit with any existing classroom schedule or curriculum, it's easier than ever to deliver interventions when they matter most and get all young children ready to read and succeed.

Stay on track for implementation success with the professional development modules for Story Friends.

Reviews

Review by: Nickola Wolf Nelson, Professor emerita, Western Michigan University; Editor-in-Chief, Topics in Language Disorders
"Great authors, solid scholarship. Story Friends is a wonderful evidence-based resource for helping young children learn new concepts through literacy while learning how to use literacy to learn!"
Review by: Timothy Shanahan, Distinguished Professor Emeritus, University of Illinois at Chicago
"There are two intersected paths one must travel to prevent reading disability: one to the alphabetic code and the other to language learning. Story Friends will help children along the language-learning path—charmingly, in a way both consistent with research and appealing to young children."
Review by: Andrea DeBruin-Parecki, Principal Research Project Manager, Educational Testing Service Early Childhood Research and Assessment Center
"Story Friends provides individual instruction in key areas of early literacy that impact future reading comprehension. Using Story Friends can assist young children, particularly those identified as needing supplementary help, develop a broader vocabulary and acquire tools to help them gain further understandings."
