Four phonics stories specially designed to help children of all abilities overcome language-based learning difficulties.

Meg and Greg are off on a series of summer adventures around their neighborhood, along with some four-legged companions. The two friends pull off a bake sale despite back-to-back disasters in the preparations, save the day for Greg’s mom when her ballet studio floods, rescue the neighbor's dog after he slips down a slope into a cove, and discover a lost cat with newborn kittens sheltering in a dangerous spot in the garden.

Meg and Greg: The Bake Sale is the third book in the Orca Two Read series designed for shared reading between a child learning to read or struggling to read and an experienced reader, following Frank and the Skunk and A Duck in a Sock. Inside you'll find four stories that introduce one new phonogram (a letter or combination of letters that represent a sound) in each story. This book focuses on the "magic e": a-e, e-e, i-e, o-e, and u-e phonograms. The stories have special features to help a child with dyslexia or another language-based learning difficulty find reading success.

Praise for the Orca Two Read series:

“A thoughtfully designed storybook adds another helpful tool to the box for readers who need support.” - Kirkus for Frank and the Skunk

“A unique approach to high-interest texts for reluctant burgeoning readers, this book offers phonics fun wrapped in serious research-based success.” - School Library Journal for A Duck in a Sock

“The stories offer both flashes of humor and plenty of action to drive the instructional intent.” - Booklist for A Duck in a Sock

“Clear, well-spaced font and the shaded paper on the right hand side pages make the reading more accessible to a dyslexic reader. The length of each story is manageable and has a good flow and pace. The partnering of the adult/buddy’s reader’s page and the kid’s page works beautifully.”
– CM: Canadian Review of Materials
“An essential purchase for school and public libraries.”
– School Library Journal
