Frequently Asked Questions

Why did you write Book of Mormon Little Books?

While using leveled little books to teach reading in the public schools I was able to steadily accelerate children’s reading abilities.  Knowing that the Book of Mormon helps us all draw near unto Jesus Christ, I often thought, “It would be wonderful to have leveled little books using Book of Mormon stories!”  The more I thought about this need for beginning readers, the more I felt prompted to write these books, and now, my 32 leveled little books have been published!

How do these books help children to learn to read?

Book of Mormon Little Books for beginning readers have direct correspondence between the text and the pictures.  Patterns, repetition, and consistent text format appear in the beginning levels.  As the levels increase the patterns diminish, print becomes smaller, vocabulary becomes more difficult, and the picture predictability decreases.  The artwork portrays a clear connection between the text and the illustrations.  Total word count and 95% accuracy level are printed on the back of each book.  A beginner should fluently read each book with this accuracy level before going on to the next book.  A child who can fluently read level F books will be able to read the actual Book of Mormon.  A companion book, Scripted Lesson Plans for Book of Mormon Little Books, which includes lessons for all 32 books, has been published in conjunction with this series.  Click the red link and go to number 2, “research” to see how “The Big 5 Essential Components to Teach Reading” are included in every lesson! 

What is your teaching experience and education?

I have taught all grades K-6 for over 25 years in the public schools in California and Arizona.  I served as an Arizona State Reading Specialist, consulting with principals, reading coaches and teachers to support the implementation of Scientifically Based Reading Research practices.  My Master of Education degree emphasized teaching children to read and write.  I used a unique method of teaching my own five children the scriptures by preparing 2,241 Book of Mormon Picture Pages. Now, I’m retired and teach my grandchildren with these materials.

How hard was it to write leveled books and how did you accomplish this task?

As I attempted this endeavor I realized that the story line was too complicated for the simplistic lower patterned levels. I was distraught and felt like giving up because I didn’t know how to accomplish this goal, yet I felt I must write these books.  While praying I was inspired to introduce the family of Lehi by creating stories that would help beginning readers connect with everyday happenings that could have taken place during Lehi’s time period.  Levels A and B fit into this category.  Level C continues with commonplace events and starts incorporating scriptural ideas into the stories of Lehi’s family.  Each book in Levels D through F includes the scriptural reference at the beginning of the book and relates scriptural stories.  Quotes are footnoted on each page. See the descriptions of the levels.

What is the central theme of your books and what can they do for children?

This series of Book of Mormon Little Books tells the story of Lehi’s family—from when his children were young to the time his people reach the Promised Land.  Young readers will learn the stories, strengthen their testimonies, and feel the joy of actually reading and re-reading these little books.  The small size of the book, repetitious words in the script, and direct picture correspondence develop a sense of ownership and self confidence in young readers.  See pictures of each book in shopping cart.

How are your Little Books different from other Latter-day Saints books for young children?

Being a seasoned teacher of reading, I find that the read-aloud children’s books available in Latter-day Saint bookstores and catalogues are generally too difficult for beginning readers—an important time to start developing reading proficiency. Book of Mormon Little Books fill that gap so the very young will be able to actually read on their own.  These books enable young children to start with lower leveled materials, and increase their abilities little by little as they continue mastering higher levels.  While reading and re-reading they will acquire an appreciation and love for the Book of Mormon characters and stories, and lasting impressions will be with them as they continue to learn the gospel truths throughout their lives!  Scripted Lesson Plans for Book of Mormon Little Books enhance scriptural discussions and provide a supplement for teaching reading.
