Realistic (fiction), 72 words, Level E (Grade 1), Lexile 210L, Fiction Series
Giraffes or gorillas? Giants or goblins? Which do you prefer? In The Brothers G, readers will learn about two brothers, Greg and George. Even though they both like the letter Gg, they each like a different sound that the letter Gg makes: George prefers the /j/ sound, while Greg is a fan of the /g/ sound. The repetitive text, high-frequency words, and colorful illustrations will help students understand the difference between the two letter Gg sounds. This book can also be used to teach about determining author's purpose as well as how to identify plural nouns.
