Foundations B Readers: Young Artist Series
The Young Artist Series: Eight new readers for Foundations B
The stories in our new Young Artist Series provide reading practice for children using Logic of English Foundations B, in addition to the original Foundations B Readers and the reading activities in the lessons.
Each reader features a story by children’s author Kimber Iverson and illustrations by an emerging young artist. Each one is designed to fall at a different point in Foundations B, so that every word of the reader can be sounded out using phonograms and spelling rules students have learned at that point.

Logic of English readers have fun, interesting stories and pictures, but something significant is missing . . . sight words! Rather than teaching kids to memorize these words by rote, Logic of English teaches them how to read them, providing answers to questions such as:
- Why is there a silent E at the end of have? English words do not end in V.
- Why does the O in go say its long sound? A, E, O, and U usually say their long sounds at the end of a syllable.
Research shows that when students are taught phonograms and spelling rules, their reading and spelling skills improve dramatically. Each Logic of English Reader is designed to come at a particular point in phonics instruction so that students can sound out every word, strengthening their fluency, confidence, and comprehension!

The Young Artist Series Readers are now scheduled in Foundations B, starting with the 3rd edition of the Foundations B Teacher's Manual (2019), and included in the Foundations B Sets.
For those using an earlier edition of the B Teacher's Manual, these readers are a great way to provide optional extra reading practice, in addition to the eight Foundations B Readers used in the lessons. We recommend including the Young Artist Series readers for any Foundations B student who is still developing reading fluency. See the list of titles above to see where each one fits into the lessons.
They're also a wonderful resource for any developing reader!
