In primary school we were taught how to read using the 'One, two, three and away' created by Sheila McCullagh and illustrated by Ferelith Eccles Williams. Some of the characters I remember from the books are, Roger Red Hat, Percy Green Hat, Johnny and Jennifer Yellow Hat. Memories of learning to read are also slowing coming back to me.
Roger Red Hat
I really like the illustrations, but I can't seem to find much about Ferelith Eccles Williams
