Super Hammy – My First Reading Series  is for pre-school, kindergarten and grade one. Parents can use them at home and teachers can use them in the classroom. They are Fountas & Pinnell levels A, B and C. The books can be purchased individually or as a set of 15 in English or French. Super Hami est disponible en français.  

These books are specially designed to make it easier for children to learn how to read. Teachers call them levelled books. They increase in difficulty very gradually. The sentence structures, sight words and vocabulary are carefully controlled.

OKSANNA CRAWLEY – AUTHOR/ILLUSTRATOR After retiring from a 25-year career as a kindergarten teacher and early literacy specialist, I decided to write books with engaging characters and simple, funny stories that would inspire and motivate children to read. I love to make children laugh! At the same time, I wanted to help teachers and parents by making it easier to teach reading. I’ve used my knowledge of teaching reading and love of art to create these books.
