A Duck in a Sock is the first book in a series designed for shared reading between a child learning to read and an experienced reader. The stories have special features to help a child with dyslexia or another language-based learning difficulty find reading success.

Meg and Greg are hanging out for the summer doing what ten-year-olds do—helping an injured duckling, finding a lost pet fish, saving ranch animals from a wildfire and catching a wandering sloth! Jump inside to join Meg and Greg on their adventures.

Kirkus Reviews
“Brings new energy to the task of learning to read.”
Booklist
“The stories offer both flashes of humor and plenty of action to drive the instructional intent.”
CM: Canadian Review of Materials
“There are many books focusing on leveled reading, but Meg and Greg: A Duck in a Sock is a series with a difference...The sharing of the reading between an experienced reader and the child allows for the inclusion of more complex text on the buddy reader's page and a lower reading level with a phonogram focus on the kid's page. This allows for a richer reading experience and a guided learning experience for the child. Highly Recommended.”
Publishers Weekly
“This primer should appeal to phonics stalwarts and phonics learners...Art, drawn in a heavy ink line, helps readers focus on labeled objects and voice-balloon content.”
School Library Journal
“A unique approach to high-interest texts for reluctant burgeoning readers, this book offers phonics fun wrapped in serious research-based success.”
