Perfect for Reception,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Oxford Reading Tree Songbirds: Level 2. The Odd Pet and Other Stories (Paperback)
Just bought this for my daughter who is half-way through her Reception year at school. Haven't given it to her yet (waiting for Easter hols!) but having flicked through I think she'll love it. It seems perfect for her current stage - lots of simple phonics-blending words, with just a few "red" words (if you're doing read-write-inc) like "he", "she", "the" thrown in. Each story starts with a parents page that tells you which phonics sounds the story focuses on, and lists the extra words your child might need help with. Illustrations are lovely, and each story in the book is illustrated by a different artist and has slightly different font style, to help differentiate I suppose.
I'd just add that this is book 2 of the series, with "The Ox and the Yak" being book 3, so although both are labelled "Stage 2" this one is slightly easier.
