Welcome to Wild Daisies Frog Reading Books!

This is an Early Literacy Programme created by Jill – Frog Lady - Mitchell. The programme has been evolving for the last 20 years based on the results of an Intensive Series of Studies using Teacher Aides who worked 1 to 1 with children who were considered to be unlikely to ever learn to read properly and extensive experience gained from our 1 to 1 Frog Pond Tutors (who work on a private basis) from 1996 to 2016 involving the Full Programme.

We now want EVERYONE to have the opportunity to use this Programme with Children or Non Reading Adults, so you too can watch the absolute delight on their faces as they realise that THEY REALLY CAN SUCCEED AND THEY REALLY CAN LEARN TO READ AND WRITE!

  • The Frog Books offer a COMPLETE PROGRAMME for anyone learning to READ and WRITE English.
  • The Series sits comfortably alongside other Reading Books also being used in NZ schools.
  • The Frog Reading Books Programme is suitable for anyone wanting a Graduated, Structured Early Literacy Programme that wraps Reading and Writing Skills in together as it proceeds.
  • It is suitable for – Home Schoolers or Schools – Classroom Reading Groups or 1 to 1 Instruction (perfect for Teacher Aides) RTLB, ESOL, Dyslexic Pupils, Autistic Students, Irlens Students, Special Needs and Distance Learners. Both Brand New Learners and Just Plain Mixed Up Readers!
  • The Programme supports Students from Beginner Reader/Writers to Fluency or picks up Students who have already started to read, but who have ‘gaps’ and ‘confusions.’
  • There are a total of 73 Reading Books over 6 Levels.
