These Barron's series of books for beginning readers comprise a series of illustrated stories. Each book in the series uses a set of sight words and emphasizes a word family, for e.g. an, and, etc. Each story uses the root words and facilitates the child's vocabulary-building, adding more words to a child's vocabulary as he/she progresses from one book to the next.

The bonus here is that the stories are fun and engaging, and my 5-year-old who will be starting kindergarten in fall has enjoyed them all and is eager to move on to the next book. Visual learners who are motivated by colorful illustrations will also love these books as they are vividly illustrated, but not overly garish as to distract from the reading experience. The children who read these series of books will experience increased confidence as they master the reading skills, and the stories are short enough that the books can be finished under 10 minutes.
In "Pip and Kip", the word families covered are 'ip', and the sight words covered are he, oh, no, to, and, for, see, then, drink, and likes.

The books in Set 2 are:
The Tan Can
The Best Pets Yet
Pip and Kip
Frog Knows Best
Bub and Chub
Where is the Treasure? (A Bring-it-all-together Book)
What a Trip (A Bring-it-all-together Book)
This is a silly little book that did not hold the attention of my 3 year old. There is just nothing to it. Learning to read can be done with a book that is interesting and fun; I would not recommend this book to anyone.
