My 5 year old is sounding out cvc words and was given a basic Kindle for Christmas (not kindle fire)... we're doing progressive phonics on it and she's got a couple books in her freetime section that she loves looking at and trying to sound out some of the words, but I only have one book that's at about that basic bottom phonetic reading level (with a few sight words thrown in) can anyone recommend some early readers that I can add for her that would help take advantage of her sudden interest and motivation? I'm willing to spend a few dollars, but free is good too!

The tough thing with the CVC stage if you're using a pure phonics methods is that there isn't a lot of books with just CVC words.

There is the McGuffeys primer and Free and Treadwell has a primer. They may both have kindle versions.

Some books start easier and get harder. The first few pages of Hop on Pop are mostly CVC words, but it does get harder. We used BOB Books and Nora Gaydos readers in the CVC stage. Not sure if something like those is offered in ebook form.
