How do you read before words are know?  

There are many ways, but here are a few:
1.  Look at the pictures and tell yourself a story.
2.  Look to see if you can find any letters in your name. 
3. Count the letters you find on each page.
4.  Search for capital letters.  Where do you see them?
5.  Search for lower case letters.  Where do you see them?
6.  Search for words you know.

7.  Point and read words known. Click here for ways to read Easy Sight Word Poems.
