Superphonics: Book 3 by Ruth Miskin
Children learn with the help of Phoneme Fred, a little alien character who can only speak using separate sounds. Parent and child follow five simple steps: find the rhyming words, find the sounds, blend the sounds, split the word into sounds, and read the word. "Superphonics" offers swift progress because of its highly focused approach. With just 20 minutes' work a day, most children will complete Book 3 in 1-2 weeks. It is illustrated in colour throughout by Chris O'Neill.
