Jan has a super dog named Stan, who thinks he can do everything she can! But is that really true? See for yourself in this laugh-out-loud story!

This rib-tickling read-aloud tale was created especially to build early phonics skills by teaching children to recognize "families" of words that share the same spelling pattern. This key reading strategy helps kids decode new words with ease—and become stronger readers, writers, and spellers! Also includes riddles, a cheer, and reading tips!

How to use this product:

Read aloud the story once for pleasure and enjoy the whimsical illustrations. Then reread the book, emphasizing the -ay word ending in the appropriate words. Ask children to listen closely and identify all the words that end in -ay (they might raise their hand or clap when they hear one, or you might choose a volunteer to point to the word on the page). As they do so, make a list on chart paper of all the -ay words!
