Jolly Phonics Readers are fully decodable books for new readers. These Readers have been written with a carefully controlled vocabulary, and are specifically designed for children who are learning to read and write with Jolly Phonics.

• The text in these Purple Level Books (fifth level) uses only decodable regular words that use

the letter-sound knowledge taught so far: the 42 main letter sounds and the main alternative letter-sound spellings (‹y› as in happy, the ‘hop-over ‹e›’ spellings of the long vowel sounds, ‹ay› as in day, ‹ea› as in seat, ‹y› and ‹igh› as in fly and high, ‹ow› as in low and now, ‹ew› as in dew, ‹oy› as in joy, ‹ir› and ‹ur› as in bird and turn, ‹al›, ‹au› and ‹aw› as in talk, pause and saw, soft ‹c› and soft ‹g› as in cent and gene, ‹ph› as in phonics and ‹air›, ‹ear› and ‹are› as in hair, pear and care) and a small number of tricky words (frequently used words that are not fully decodable at this stage). • All new tricky words and alternative vowel spellings used are shown on the front inside cover. These can be used as a quick practice activity before starting the book. • Faint type is used for silent letters, like the ‹b› in lamb. • Comprehension questions and discussion topics are included at the end of the book. These ensure that children are not only able to read the text, but also get meaning from it.

Frogs have smooth skin but toads have lots of lumps and bumps on them.

Frogs are good at jumping, while toads take short hops or run along the ground.

Frogs and toads live in ponds, rivers, rainforests and trees! a frog in a rainforest tree

Like frogs, toads need to live where it is moist and wet, but they spend more time on land than frogs do.

Frogs and toads come in all shapes and sizes. Some are so small that they could sit on your fingernail, while the Goliath frog can grow to be 33cm long!

Frogs and toads live in every continent except Antarctica. They do not always avoid the cold, however. Some frogs live within the Arctic circle. The Alaskan wood frog can even survive being frozen in winter. When the thaw comes in spring, the Alaskan wood frog thaws out, too, and hops away to enjoy the summer weather!

Despite its name, the Surinam toad is really a type of frog! It is called a toad because of its lumpy-looking skin. It lives on muddy riverbeds in the rainforest, where it floats about looking like a dead leaf.

When Surinam toads mate, the male guides the eggs to the female’s back where they stick. eggs female Surinam toad

skin growing around eggs

The skin grows around the eggs until you cannot see them. They continue to develop under the skin. When they are ready, the pockets in the skin open up and the little froglets emerge. 15
