“Brings new energy to the task of learning to read.” - Kirkus Reviews
“The stories offer both flashes of humor and plenty of action to drive the instructional intent.” - Booklist
“There are many books focusing on leveled reading, but Meg and Greg: A Duck in a Sock is a series with a difference...The sharing of the reading between an experienced reader and the child allows for the inclusion of more complex text on the buddy reader's page and a lower reading level with a phonogram focus on the kid's page. This allows for a richer reading experience and a guided learning experience for the child. Highly Recommended.” - CM: Canadian Review of Materials
“This primer should appeal to phonics stalwarts and phonics learners...Art, drawn in a heavy ink line, helps readers focus on labeled objects and voice-balloon content.” - Publishers Weekly
“A unique approach to high-interest texts for reluctant burgeoning readers, this book offers phonics fun wrapped in serious research-based success.” - School Library Journal
