Dick, Jane, Sally, Mother, and Father are not the only family having fun. This time, meetMike, twin sisters Pam and Penny, and their parents. Two families mean twice the laughs and twice the fun. Beginning readers will love the way each chapter is an individual story, and parents and educators will appreciate the way this format encourages young readers’ progression.
Dick and Jane are the main characters in these popular basal readers written by Dr. William S. Gray. They were used to teach children to read from the 1930s through to the 1970s in the United States. The books rely on sight reading (or “whole word reading”) and repetition, using phrases like, “Oh, see. Oh, see Jane. Funny, funny Jane”.
