The Secret Pet, by Shelley Davidow is a continuation of the phonetically based early reader series. The Secret Pet is the first chapter book in this series and focuses on the phonetic vowel teams, such as ea, ie, oe, ue, diagraphs, open and closed syllables and more.
The story interweaves the animals from the first six books into a more in depth, entertaining and adventurous story. Shelley’s ability to create a humorous and thoughtful story is once again shown in The Secret Pet. Her beautiful drawings bring the story to life and capture the attention of those early or struggling readers and keep them reading until they finish the entire book.
Shelley Davidow's The Secret Pet is a perfect chapter book for young readers who are in the process of learning to decode consonant and vowel blends. From the first page of this sweet story, you can tell that Shelley knows what lives in children's warm hearts and curious minds. She artistically gives her readers repeated opportunities to practice; they cannot help but be successful. Shelley's writing is musical, inventive, and quite hilarious at times.

A delightful chapter book for young readers with a simple yet enticing journey, and a very satisfying resolution. The story line, with its touches of humour and its multiple connections to animals and nature, urges the reader to continue to the end, a necessary requirement for any successful reader!
