Understanding your feelings...

Not sure I have any solutions, but I want to encourage you.

If you had a budget of $1000 to buy a series of Phonics Readers, what would you purchase? I appreciate any ideas. It cannot be an "online" subscription, but actual books. Thanks in advance!

Truly a problem!
