Each book features one house on King St. and its inhabitants. The books are illustrated. They are very short and designed to be read in one session. Set One books have a word count below 100.
Great care has been taken to ensure that they are largely phonetically regular. High frequency and irregular words are introduced gradually. Care has been taken to link, wherever possible, the vocabulary and sounds introduced to the recommended structure of the literacy strategy. Because of the adult nature of the books, there is inevitably some vocabulary linked to adults learners' life experiences.
King Street is an integrated, structured reading programme for adult and adolescent learners which can be used by trained teachers as well as volunteer and support staff. This carefully graded reading scheme provides opportunities for practice in all the underpinning skills necessary to produce a competent reader.
