How Chickadee Works

Classic Illustrations

Remember when kids books were well-drawn? Our kids deserve better than throw-away, black and white stick figures and lazy artwork. Each reader is beautifully illustrated by Mark Beauchamp.

Story Grip

Just because a story is for kids doesn't mean they have to be dumb. Chickadee set out to engage young kids with real stories with beginnings, middles, and ends.

Stair-step phonics

Every story and every book builds on the last. With lessons carefully crafted by highly experienced teachers, Chickadee sets a manageable pace of learning. 

Chickadee teaches your kids how to sound out words by focusing on key phonics sounds and moving from simple to more complex sentences — without boring the new reader!

Real learning. Real fun.

Excellent

Time has flown by, and my firstborn is 4. We have tried lots of things to ignite a passion for reading, and have thrown up our hands… until now. This was well worth the money. My son is now confidently conquering the first set of book, and I can’t wait to see how this continues to blossom.

Thanks to the creators of this set and to Canon Press for connecting us. I will forever be grateful !

Cheers,

Samuel and the Flynn Family.

My daughter loves to pull these books out and start reading them or attempting to read them all by herself. This set of books has made her want to read independently and I also love hearing her laugh at the story lines.

These are great! For little readers and “not yet readers” alike!

These are great! My 4 year old son has been reading the first set and loves having books he can read all by himself. My other two preschoolers also enjoy listening to the engaging stories and creative illustrations. They are SO much better in all respects than their outdated predecessor, Bob Books. Thank you for an awesome product to aid our little ones as they learn to read and love quality literature!

So Great!

These are very fun and engaging, my new reader loves them and I actually enjoy listening to her read.

Fun decodable readers are so hard to find--but the Chickadee readers are exactly what I was looking for! My son has dyslexia so we need to practice practice practice and he was getting a little weary of the bland little stories we were using.

Good Word Choices, but Plots are Flat and Men are Stupid?

The structuring of the books is great for teaching a child to read. We go from short a to short o, etc, then mix them together before moving on to long a then long o, etc. Exactly what they need.

These books are supposed to be more interesting than Bob Books, and they are (since Bob Books are terrible), but there is still much room for a better story. How about speech bubbles and exclamations, funny jokes and plot twists? I know we're limited by phonics here, but I think it's doable. For now, these are fine.

I was a bit disappointed in "Dad and the Lads." Dad and the boys run out of gas and get a flat tire, and Dad is too stupid or unprepared to fix it himself, so Mom comes to the rescue to bring gas and tools to fix the problems. I am disappointed in Canon Press for publishing a story where men are shamed, women are capable, and gender role reversal is the solution. We have enough literature like that out in the world, and I think Canon Press needs to be more careful in standing up for family values.
