The 80 books in the series use systematic phonics to ensure that your beginning readers will get a great start in reading proficiency.

The books begin at a very simple level and gradually introduce new sounds and words until students have mastered all 44 phonemes (sounds) in the English language. 

The books should be read in order, because the sounds and words in each book build upon those learned in previous books. It is important that students master each book before moving on to the next.
Each new word throughout the program is repeated at least 5 times in the book in which it first appears and 5 more times in the next 10 books.

Mat the Rat decides to fool Ann the Giraffe by hiding underwater in a diving suit. Ann, in the boat, is sad without Mat. She lowers a fishing net into the water. Mat puts an octopus in the net. Ann pulls up the net, and, on seeing the octopus, is sadder. Next Mat puts himself into the net. Ann pulls and pulls but the net is too heavy. Ed and Mit come to her rescue. When the net is hauled out and Mat appears, Ann is no longer sad. She is pleased to see Mat.
