Our new decodable series is proving a great success in schools. Here are just some of the lovely comments we are receiving from our customers. If you have any feedback you’d like to share, please email

We received our sunshine decodables this morning and love them (especially the font which is great for our NZ learners). We are looking forward to ordering the next sets when they are published!

Thank you for the decodable books that arrived at our school today. They are spot on! The texts are really well sequenced, with the scope and sequence making it simple to follow and teach. Thank you again for producing such a fantastic and much needed resource. We are really excited to get started with it.

A very professional package! I thought the piece your team published this week about decodable books was very good and most useful.
I have been recommending the series already. The move to this approach to early reading teaching is certainly taking off as you might have seen from the interest in your series. 

I just wanted to let you know that I just received the first three sets of your decodable books that I ordered and I’m impressed! My son has done the first set already; he actually enjoyed reading them because he found the stories were a little bit funny (he liked Dip in) and because they’re decodable. He obviously had a sense of achievement as he was able to sound out the words himself. I’ll definitely be getting the next sets.

My teachers are loving them! The cultural aspect gives them an extra tick as we have the second largest Pasifika people population in New Zealand. A Tongan boy I teach was instantly engaged when he saw the children drinking a milkshake in book one as he related to it easily. I have also found them useful for older Junior children who are working at level 1 of the curriculum and have been struggling with the whole language books for so long. At last, they are feeling success in reading like their classmates. 

The teacher’s handbook has certainly helped one of the teachers I have worked with. When she read it she said, “It’s all here for me, I don’t have to look online for guidance and it’s so clear and easy to follow.” 

Again, thank you for creating such a great resource for both teachers and students. Students are gaining so much from them and teachers are feeling empowered to make a difference.

They are being used and loved! The teachers are finding the scope and sequence good, moves into four sounds quickly and the stories are great. They like the value of them and have since ordered their own sets from using mine. The assessment Teacher Manual is also great.
