04 The Problem - Written by Susan Spelic and Illustrated by Cassandra Storm D.

Tommy and Oscar, his big scruffy dog, go for a jog on a hot day. Tommy can not find his dog! Where is Oscar?

‘The Problem’ has language that helps to teach the short ‘o’ sound as in the words; ‘log, Tommy, jog, on, and not’.

At The Reading Mountain, we aim to empower, support and engage young reluctant and dyslexic readers as they learn to read.
