A Short Story From The Tania Universe for Children Learning To Read

Anne is my friend is a short story set in the Tania universe. Most of the words are 3, 4 or 5 letters long. Many words are repeated several times, so the child can recognise them after figuring them out the first time and get satisfaction from successfully reading them.

The story is less than 200 words long, but has the lovable characters from the Tania universe, with engaging interactions. Children with younger friends or siblings will easily relate to it. If you already read the Tania stories to your little one, and now want to encourage your child to read on their own, then these stories are an excellent place to start. Having heard Tania stories before, your child will be curious about the characters. The simple words repeated several times will make it easy for your child to read and successfully reading a story in a series that interests them, will give them a sense of accomplishment.


As always the story is free to download. I am using it to teach my own daughter to read by herself. The book can be downloaded in PDF format here. Feel free to print out a personal copy for your little one.

This is the first of many. There will be more soon, so check in here every so often.
