Timothy of the 10th Floor

by Jenny Phillips

Each chapter of the Level 3 Phonics Read-Together Books begins with a phonics page. The phonics principles studied are then reviewed repeatedly and reinforced within the engaging chapter. The parent and child take turns reading their labeled sections, which allows the child to dive into rich literature and complex plots and experience greater joy in reading. These books improve reading fluency, speed, and accuracy; expose the child to model writing; instill a love of good books; and create bonding time for the parent and the child. In addition, the books are packed with powerful messages about moral character.

Eleven-year-old Timothy Todd lives happily with his dad on the tenth floor of the Bedford Apartments building—that is, until Timothy’s cousin, Zoey, and her grandmother, Nanna Bell, come to live with them. Timothy isn’t thrilled about giving up his room or sharing his life with people he barely remembers, but he soon learns how much this homeschooled girl and her loving grandmother will change his life. This read-together book is filled with mystery, fun, and powerful messages.
