Half-Pint Kids…where children learn to read with JOY!


Make learning to read a joyful adventure with Half-Pint Readers, a unique series of easy-to-decode phonics books. These adorable little books were lovingly created by a kindergarten teacher, who understands how young children learn to read, not by a large curriculum company.  As her students began to sound out CVC words (consonant-vowel-consonant), they wanted to start reading books. But all of the letter sounds had not yet been introduced. So she began writing and illustrating books for her students, taking care to use only the letters that had been taught. As the skills progressed, more books were written. Soon these books became very popular and were self-published by Half-Pint Kids, Inc. and named the Half-Pint Readers. Based upon their original artwork, the books have recently been redesigned by a very talented illustrator!

With Half-Pint Readers, children do not have to master the entire alphabet before they can read their first book, which is a real confidence booster! Learn more about our story…
