SET B builds on the skills of SET A, introducing more sound-spelling combinations, more in-depth comprehension, and deeper consideration of themes and morals. Children read stories with the now familiar characters of Sita, Ravi, Vikram, and Krishna. They also meet Matsyavatar, and Garuda, in addition to the characters Nandi, Jack, Yasha, and Jeeva. They learn about ecological living and are exposed to a wider variety of topics, settings, and themes. Five of the talking books in this set are simplified traditional tales which bring well-loved stories to modern readers. The activity books challenge and broaden children’s skills and understanding in a step-by-step easy way.

This set is designed for approximately 14 weeks of instruction spread over a calendar year. Children will return to the talking books again and again over many years since they are enchanting stories with interactive features. And children as young as 3 years old will love being read to from the books in this set. Older children long past the instructional level of the books will enjoy the interactive features of the PENpal that has the characters speak and sing, and allows a child to record his or her own voice into the books.
