Dyslexia and Literacy Learning for Parents

Decodable Books for Kids

  • Simple Words Books by Cigdem Knebel
  • Bob Books by Lynn Kertell Maslen, Bobby Lynn Maslen and John R. Maslen. These are a great starting point for kids just learning to sound out words.
  • Core Knowledge Language Arts “Skills Units” – these printable story collections are carefully controlled for phonics concepts and I like having a book with many short “chapters.” Note: the text in the regular lessons is not decodable for young readers, but the “Kindergarten [or other grade level] Skills” units for each grade include great decodable text!
  • Flyleaf Publishing – Flyleaf offers lots of decodable stories online. These are beautiful picture books, with engaging stories, and they are currently offered for free (through the 2022-2023 school year, at least).


  • Epic Books – ebook and audiobook subscription service with a growing catalogue of titles – Best for elementary age students.
  • Libby – use your public library’s ebook and audiobook catalogue on your iOS or Android device.
