Summary: When Sally and her moms go to visit the zoo, they think the new ape exhibit will be the funniest part of their day…but they are in for a big surprise! Join Sally and her moms as they explore the zoo and learn about the long “A” sound. Phonics For Us! is a series of children's phonics books written for alternative families. At We Live Here Too Publishing, we believe that children not only need to see their families represented in the books they read, but also to see them represented within the context of everyday childhood actions and behaviors. Our books are about going to the store, or having a birthday, or getting a new pet...and alternative families simply pop up within the context of that larger story. Learning to read is one of the most important things our children will ever do. We believe strongly that those early experiences shape future reading behavior. It is absolutely critical, then, that those early experiences be positive. Seeing families like their own reflected in their phonics primers is one way to help create that experience!
