This book encourages a phonic approach to reading, with each chapter subtly focusing on particular letter combinations and sounds:
- Chapter 1: consider the word 'there' and link it to the words 'here' & 'where'
- Chapter 2: look at words beginning with /w/ and identify where the suffixes 'ing' & 'ed' have been added to these words
- Chapter 3: identify words beginning with the grapheme O, words containing the letters 'ou', and can look at the different sounds represented by the letters
- Chapter 4: identify words beginning with 't'; the word 'they' and the digraph /th/
- Chapter 5: investigate the letter pattern 'ai' and the associated sounds
- Chapter 6: explore silent letters within words
