A decodable book featuring 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 Meg and Greg 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 Meg and Greg 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
“Each story is followed by simple games to cement the concept into the child’s brain. Children will be eager to read these stories and will understand the concepts well.”
– Children's Literature
