Apps - Digital Books

We created our phonics based apps along with our books for convenience, but more importantly for their interactive features. Our apps have multiple functions, allowing your child to read independently, to be read to, and the ability to tap words to hear each sound.

Each of our phonics apps contain the entire level collection, meaning when you purchase the app, you will have access to all 20 books from that level on your device. Your child will then be able to read their favourite books at home or on the go.

Both parents and teachers can support children with phonemic awareness, vocabulary, comprehension and development through the use of the pre-reading and post-reading activities provided within each story and level.

Levelled Apps

Our apps are available on both the Apple Store and Google Play.

Level 1

Our Level 1 app introduces the sounds s, a, t, p, i, n. All the words in each of the 20 books in Level 1 are made up of only these sounds and minimal sight words. This small number of sounds and the opportunity to practice using 20 different fun and engaging stories about Nat and her bush friends, allows children to master the beginnings of the basic code as well as blending and tracking.

Level 2

Our level 2 app introduces the sounds m, d, g, o, c, k, ck, e u and r. All the words in each of the 20 books in Level 2 are made up of these sounds and those introduced in Level 1, along with minimal sight words. After having mastered the Level 1 sounds and the basic reading skills of blending and tracking, children should have gained the confidence to read Australian stories with new words and more text on each page.

Level 3

Our level 3 app introduces the sounds b, h, f, l, j, v, w, x, y and z. All the words in each of the 20 books in level 3 are made up of these sounds and those introduced in Level 1 and 2 along with minimal sight words.
