I bought this pack when my sons teacher told me he was falling behind in year1 to evaluate his level and practice. It is by far the best value and my son loved to read the books and see his own progress as he managed to jump onto a higher level

Bets value - good stories

This box set was amazingly good value.
Arrived promptly and in perfect condition.
This is a great set of varied level books which I am reading and working through with my son ready for when he starts school in September.
Each story has comprehension questions at the end, so you can see if they have taken it all in.. Also most books have a game at the end (maze or puzzle etc) which my sons really loves doing.
Highly recommended!

I got these to support my daughter's reading at the start of year 1. She LOVES them! They parallel the school books but don't duplicate them, so it makes an ideal support. They also progress in the same way as the school books do. Each book has a little game at the start and at the end and I think they have done a great job of making interesting but simple stories.

I bought the set of books for our little boy (Dan aged 6 and just entered Year 1 at his primary school). The set arrived fairly promptly, it was comprehensive and entirely complimentary to the books reads at school and as homework. Dan is delighted with the books, they came in a nice storage box and have become his favourite reading material. I have noticed that Dan has become more confident at reading and now takes a pride in reading on his own.
The books were very good value; I would recommend them without reservation for children aged about 5-7.

Format: Paperback
I bought these a few weeks back for my 3 1/2 year old daughter and they have been an instant hit. They include a very useful handbook with instructions on how to use the books and some great advice on how to start teaching your child to read. My daughter was fascinated by the very attractive box set, we have called them her "school books" and she has quickly become obsessed with reading them - the only downside is that I'm struggling to stop her from ploughing on ahead to the higher level books that she's not ready for. Each book includes suggestions on how to get your child thinking about and talking about the story; simple games at the end, such as ryhming games or matching games; and a "find the (whatever) in each picture" game. These games definitely help the child to see the books as fun rather than learning so would probably be appealing even to a child who isn't all that keen on the idea of reading. Although I think my daughter is just memorising the stories at the moment, she is definitely starting to pick out more key words and is starting to relate words in her "school books" to words she sees in print elsewhere. So a very useful tool for early readers and a really nice set to have on the bookshelf - although I can't see how anyone would pay £123 for it!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
We only received this pack of books yesterday, but my 3 year old son has insisted on having nearly all of the read to him already, and he is already making progress with recognising new words. He has laughed out loud to quite a few stories, and he is a big fan of Floppy the dog already.

There's a book for guidance for parents, but the way they have been set out means you really shouldn't need too much explanation. I will probably read it at some point soon to make sure we get the most out of these books.

We got them as our son will be the youngest in his class, and we wanted to be sure he had a bit of a hand with making sure he doesn't feel overwhelmed when he starts school. He's not keen on anything to do with numbers, but loves stories, recognises his own name, and a few letter sounds, and is keen. The guidance on the back of the first books helps you know whether your child is ready for that stage.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This selection of books should be made a compulsory purchase for anyone with a child in nursery or reception. The next generation won't know Janet and John or Poppy and Sam, they will talk about Chip, Kipper, Biff and Floppy and these books complement the ones your child will be reading in school.

I cannot speak highly enough of this series. The stories are engaging, the pictures bright and informative (and with the added bonus of a hidden animal in every picture, similar to the yellow duck hidden on every page of the Usborne "Apple Tree Farm" books)and the difficulty increases at just the correct rate throughout the series. The early books introduce simple phonemes and reinforce them with repetition, but without becoming boring, while as you progress through the series, the stories become more complex without your child realising they are reading "real" stories. A classic case of Boiling the Frog!

Don't hesitate, click "add to basket" now. It will be one of the best purchases you make this year, especially at less than a pound a book! Absolute bargain.

Brilliant books to read at home with your child to prepare them for reading at school. These are part of the syllabus that they will be having in Key Stage 1. By buying these, you give your child a head start.
