Review

"Songbirds Phonics is a pedigree scheme worth every penny for helping children get to grips with words, sounds and spelling patterns, and to inspire a love of reading . . . Julia Donaldson has described Songbirds as her 'proudest achievement' and it is easy to see why." (John Dabell, Teach Primary)

Book Description

Practise phonics with Julia Donaldson's Songbirds: 6 stories in 1!

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.

we bought these for my daughter who is a little behind on her reading to compliment the "biff chip and kipper" scheme from school, its nice to read something not biff, chip and kipper related! she enjoys them too.

I bought the whole series from level 1 to level 6. Good fun books to help our 4 year old read (level 1). They follow the national curriculum so you can give your child extra help with their reading without compromising what they are already learning. Great stories as you'd expect from Julia Donaldson.

Great book for an beginner reader. My Son is in Junior Infants (age 4-5) and this is a little ahead of what they are doing in school, but he manages really well and can read some of the easier ones no problem. Great for his confidence, he loves that he can read his own story. These stories are more fun and less like homework.

Fabulous, clever stories that are fun to read as well as suitable for a child just learning. Slightly easier than the Biff & Chipper series which makes it a perfect supplement to what they might be given at school, and a good confidence-booster. This stage is for children who can already blend 3 or 4 letters together, eg h-o-p / a-n-d / s-e-t-s. It introduces 'sh' / 'th' and two syllable words.

We love this whole set of stories. It is fun to read, the pictures are fatastic too. We also have Biff Chip and Kipper set. This set is nice complement to them and it feels like more fun to read this set.
