I had difficulty finding decodable books that focused on blends, so I wrote some and had a friend illustrate them. This book compliments word lists with blends from Walpole & McKenna's "How to Plan Differentiated Reading Instruction." We use this book for guided reading and interventions. "Jab Crab and the Drum" features words with blends; br, cr, dr, gr, sl, sm, and tr.
Books can be copied 1 sided to 2 sided and then cut in half. Each story has a cover/title page and 7 pages of text with illustrations.
