She began writing stories for them, based on their interest to peek their fascination so they would want to read. One book lead to another from 2-3 letter phonetic words, to 2 and more letter phonetic readers, progressing to phonetic readers isolating a specific phonogram, next to bedtime stories and eventually a teen novel.
