Bridge to Reading is not a small program! It has over 50 scenes (backgrounds) and 12 animated characters in 7 chapters. Children learn 105 words in Bridge to Reading, 77 of which are on the Dolch “service” word list. Word repetition comes naturally in the context of the story. There are at least 8 repetitions of most words so that reading it becomes automatic.
Many Dolch words, such as "one", "of" and "are" cannot be "sounded out". The Dolch list consists of pronouns, conjunctions, prepositions, verbs, etc., which cannot be learned through pictures, but they can be learned through animations in the story. The 100 most common Dolch words account for almost 50% of written English. They are more meaningful when learned, from the first, in the context of an adventure story where the student identifies with the characters.
