Hi J. Hales,

Can I send you my ebook called First Friend? If you like the book and believe your son may enjoy reading it, I can send you a copy of the paperback for free with no expenses.

Please let me know either by posting here or send me an email to

Best Regards
Edinaldo Santo

To anybody looking for the perfect book for their child to read at that age I have 1 book to say.
And any parent who owns this book will immediately say "yeah, I definetly agree with that"
And that is "The Jolly Postman or Others Peoples Letters" by Janet and Allan Ahlberg.
The book is amazing with so many pull outs plus it is more then just 1 story.
It is an interactive book which is creative, original and 1 of a kind.

Pick it up on amazon The Jolly Postman or get the smaller book for much cheaper.

I've just finished reading 'Bertle B Bug and the Case of the Missing Space Slugs' by Stuart Garratt, to my 6 yr old daughter as a bedtime read and she loved it, couldn't wait to go to bed. It has adventure, mystery and a few funny moments along the way, it also as characters they can easily remember.

It may not be to every parents' taste but both boys and girls all seem to love Horrid Henry and there are lots to choose from in the Early Readers version. My granddaughter is just six and loves being able to read these books for herself!

Dr Seuss: Horton Hatches the Egg, the Lorax, how the Grinch Stole Christmas
Beatrix Potter: the Tale of Mr Samuel Whiskers
Captain Abdul's Pirate School by Colin McNaughton

If you can bear it, the Captain Underpants books e.g CU and the terror of the Talking Toilets etc.

Usborne Young readers: Jason and the Golden Fleece, Ulysses...

Also this one on Hercules Labours was popular with my boys.
The Twelve Labours of Hercules

Hello, I was just looking through past questions as I have a similiar post myself. My son is also in Reception, and at easter completed level 6 of our biff chip collection. He is now reading (similiar to I can read) 'Step into reading', level 2, he whizzed through these too, but has enjoyed them, also 'titchy witch', around 8 stories in this collection, around 30 pages in all these books, lovely pictures. Titchy witch were the most challenging, but he enjoyed them and could read them. I am now purchasing 'step into reading level 3', but I am going to put in a post to ask what chapter books to start with. Usborne books have different steps also, but I find some of there stories are quite outdated. hope this helps
