The sad dog falls in the pit. But is it a dog - or is it a pig? The Dog Pig is a very low level phonics reading book. Beautifully illustrated throughout, this fiction story features a fully decodable text suitable for ages 5 - 6., The Dog Pig covers all the letters and sounds that children meet in Phase 2 of Letters and Sounds, the UK Government's synthetic phonics reading programme. The Dog Pig is part of Ransom Reading Stars, a structured reading programme for children learning to read. The series has fifteen levels: four phonics levels (covering Letters and Sounds Phases 2 to 5) and eleven book band levels (Pink through to Lime).
