Hello, fellow book lovers. My 35 month old son can already read approx 50 words, and I am looking for recommendations that will encourage him to begin to learn to read properly. He is very much into Disney Cars and Toy Story, but also loves letters and numbers. There are so many early reading books out there, so would love to hear from others who have had success with particular books.

Many thanks,

Just a quick word of warning, your son obviously enjoys reading... please make sure he continues to enjoy picking up and reading books. As an experienced primary school teacher I have been alarmed at the number of children who have lost the enjoyment of reading and books. Make sure you read lots of stories to your child as well as getting him to read to you. For something very individual have a look at the personalised books at my kids loved these books

Thank you, Gingemum, I will. To be honest, as an avid reader, I have resisted 'teaching' him to read as I had a bad experience at school. Without teaching him, he has picked up and recognises approx 50 words. He loves books and we read to him every night without fail, and have done since he was tiny. I didnt want to get him to read before he started school, but as he seems to be showing an interest in it already, I also didnt want to dissuade him from discovering a love of words. I will check out that site, as love the idea of something personal for him.

New childrens book Henry the Horse by author Eric Pullin makes for a lovley little story with full colour illustrations. It is written in simple verse style. There is not many Horsey stories out there, so may be something different to read and be read too.
