This set of 10 books is an exciting fresh start for older pupils who need to learn the phonic code. Each book introduces the vowel sounds and their alternative spellings, following Phase Five of Letters and Sounds. The original, striking and moving illustrations and stories will appeal to struggling or reluctant readers. The set has an interest age of 8-14 years, but a reading age of 5-7. With a reading practise page, vocabulary page and multi-syllable word split for the reader, these highly decidable books ensure reading success. The stories are quest-based, leading the reader on adventures with the characters, and so keeping them interested in the outcome of the stories. Each book contains 16 full-colour pages and presents the alternative spellings for the following vowel sounds:

Book 1: 'ae': ay, ai, a, a-e, ea, ey
Book 2: 'ee': ee, ea, y, e, ie, e-e, ei
Book 3: 'oe': ow, oa, oe, o-e, o
Book 4: 'er': , er, ir, ur,or, ear
Book 5: 'ow''oi': ow, ou & oi, oy
Book 6: 'oo': oo, ue, u-e, ew, ou, u

We ordered these at the end of last year. We will be using them this year once school goes back.

Talisman Series

Children are very engaged with these books. The decodable text and themes are perfect for the older readers.

Talisman series

My senior student with low literacy levels is really motivated by these resources. We purchased Totem earlier in the year and she was keen to follow this through to Talisman. Really beneficial to have the workbook to support the reading books.

Talisman Series 1

The students are loving the series and I will be buying more asap.
