Guest Blogging at The Bubbly Blonde Teacher

Happy Thursday, friends!!

Alisha's vacationing in sunny Mexico, and I'm thrilled she invited me to fill in for the day! I've been a fan for some time now and have truly enjoyed getting to know her through blogland!

 Introducing Issy!
 I would like to introduce you to Issy and her Grandmother, Pat!  
Pat Calfee is a former teacher and educational consultant who has written
a set of children's books perfect for emergent readers.

Her granddaughter, Issy, is her 5-year-old illustrator! 
Yes, you read that right! 

The Issy books are written for children just learning to read using precious characters, sight words, predictable text, and pictures that support the stories!

The books come in a clear plastic carrying case and are perfect for gifts. 

The first book in the series is Meet Issy.
It introduces us to the delightful and talented Issy herself!

Check out these fun and lively characters!
Harry the Hippo, Flossie the Flamingo, Oscar the Octopus and MORE!

Here are some pics of my students REALLY reading these books! They love them!

Here's the Amazon link to the Issy Books!

You can learn more about Pat, Issy, and all the Issy Books on the their website,
