Dandelion Launchers follow the same progression as the Dandelion Readers. They can be used for very young readers or for readers who need lots of practice at the first stages of reading. For this reason, there is one line of text on each page. The progression in Dandelion Readers is faster. From unit 3 there is more text on each page – two or more lines.
