My Third Nature Reader includes 20 short stories for beginning readers at a second-grade reading level. Each story focuses on one or two phonics concepts or a group of sight words. My Third Nature Reader follows the exact scope and sequence of the Reading Booster C Cards, which are integrated into the Level 2 Language Arts Course Set. For example, Story #16 in the My Third Nature Reader covers the phonics concept OUR and OUGH that correlates with a reading booster card, and avoids any concepts the child has not learned yet.


My Third Nature Reader is not integrated into the language arts course, but is designed to give the child extra independent reading practice at exactly the level the child is on. The Good and Beautiful Readers boost confidence and makes reading less overwhelming and a more enjoyable and positive experience.

Note: My First Readers correlate with the Reading Booster A Cards. My Second Nature Reader correlates with the Reading Booster B Cards.

My Third Nature Reader is also available in PDF format by clicking here.
