I Want To Play is a Beginning Reader aimed toward kindergarten and first grade students learning sight words. It bridges the gap between learning sight words and reading books. The story is about a young boy searching high and low for a family member to play with. The entire story is told using only 75 words, 71 of which are words from the Fry Sight Word List, and the remaining words are phonetic. This makes it an excellent first choice for a child that is on the start to literacy. With this book, a beginning reader will gain confidence in their ability to read, opening the door to eagerly advancing their abilities with bigger, longer books.
