Kittens in Mittens is part of the Jolly Phonics Little Word Books series. It is the fourth of fourteen decodable readers providing a gradual and structured start for children who are just learning to read.
The third and fourth books in the series, Ten Tents and Kittens in Mittens, use only decodable regular words made up from the first two groups of letter sounds:
s, a, t, i, p, n
c k, e, h, r, m, d
Tips and guidance for teachers and parents are provided at the end of each book. Light type is used as a guide for those few letters that should not be sounded out, such as the /b/ in ‘lamb’.
