The complete set of 18 level 4 Jolly Readers

At the Blue Level (the fourth level), the stories are longer and introduce more tricky words, which are shown at the end of each book. In addition, all the Jolly Phonics alternative vowel spellings are used to make words like ‘day’, ‘seat’, ‘night’, ‘snow’, ‘few’, ‘girl’, ‘straw’, ‘boy’ and ‘scowl’. As before, light type is used for those few letters that should not be sounded out, such as the ‹b› in ‘lamb’ (but not in the new tricky words, which should already be familiar without this help).

This set contains 6 Inky & Friends book titles, 6 General Fiction and 6 Non-Fiction titles. Each book has four sentences per page, 18 alternative spellings and 61 Tricky Words per book

The Jolly Readers use controlled vocabulary so children can read words from their knowledge of the letter sounds in Jolly Phonics. Only a few essential tricky words are used, and these are shown at the back of each book.

The Jolly Readers have engaging and lively stories which children enjoy. The problem of heavily controlled vocabulary ('cat sat on the mat') is overcome by the much wider use of words available with digraphs, such as splash, paint, look, and trail.
