All About Reading

The folks at All About Reading and All About Spelling never cease to amaze me.


I was thrilled when they introduced their first All About Reading book and now that I have the book What Am I? in my hands…I’m just plain giddy. Especially since I know that there are even more coming!

What Am I? A Collection of Short Stories coordinates with the first 14 lessons of the Level 2 spelling program, but you do not need to use the All About Spelling program to use the books. It is a hardcover collection of ten short stories for beginning readers, each with beautiful illustrations, similar to the first reader that All About Reading released last fall.


Stories in What Am I?

  1. The Bench
  2. An Elf in the Alps
  3. Broken Robot
  4. The Bake Sale
  5. Matt the Musk Ox
  6. Skunk Hotel
  7. Champ
  8. Pine Tree Pet Shop
  9. Just for You: Poems for Fun
  10. What Am I?

Features of What Am I?

  • Engaging graphics ~ ink sketches that tell enough about the story without giving away the wording to the reader.
  • 160 page hardcover book ~ it’s sturdy and will stand up to little hands
  • Story difficulty progresses through the book.
  • Stories will appeal to both boys and girls ~ the themes range from animals to robots {and our kids enjoy them}.
  • It ties in with the Level 2 All About Spelling program ~ a huge plus if you are using it!
  • There are more coming!! Four more readers are scheduled to release by the end of 2010 along with a teacher’s manual ~ the books are being illustrated right now!


These books are still a little above Zachary’s reading level {he is working on the Level 1 spelling program and reader}, but McKenna can confidently read them to Zachary and Kaleb, and I’m happy to let her! Because they are hardcover, I know that they will easily survive the bumps and drops of daily life. We love these books so much and plan to own all of them.
