Review

"Irresistible for children learning to read" - Child Education Plus; "The Usborne Young Reading Program has a lovely selection of classic tales adapted for younger readers. Graded in seven levels, these have just enough stretch in them and yet are not too overwhelming" - The Irish Sunday Independent; "Crack reading and make confident and enthusiastic readers with this fantastic reading programme" - Julia Eccleshare

Format: Hardcover
from the 'Usborne Young Reading' series of books, which combines good stories with easy reading text.

The book is split into three good sized chapter stories:-

Chapter 1 - The tooth fairy - pages 3 -17
Chapter 2 - The forgetful fairy - pages 18 - 34
Chapter 3 - Fairy in a flap - pages 35 - 47

From the back cover:-

'Crystal, Lily and Poppy are three fairies in a flap. With stolen wands, flying lessons and Fairy Balls, there's never a dull moment.
Come to Fairyland and join in the magical fun.'

Durable, eye-catching bright pink board covers open to 48 high quality shiny pages in the popular 2-page spread format.
Numbered pages.
Beautifully illustrated throughout, this book is further enhanced by relevant expressions and some speech bubbles.
Clear, easy-to-follow text - with an average of 2-3 sentences on each page, including speech.
Complete with pretty pale pink ribbon bookmark!

My experience has shown that these books are an ideal jump from the more basic one story type books - to the more grown-up 'chapter' books without the same story spanning more than one chapter, which can be daunting to the less confident or experienced reader.
Usborne Books offer great scope for interaction and further discussion, and are rarely on the reading corner bookshelves.

Example of text (from the first story)
`The tooth fairy:-
It was a fantastic day for Crystal.
She had passed her final test at the tooth fairy training school.
Now she could turn children's baby teeth into money.

Jet, Crystal's lazy classmate, had failed all her tests. She would never be a tooth fairy.
As Jet grumbled, the others flew home and prepared for their first trips.

This was a rather disappointing book. It turned out to be similar to a Ladybird book so was much smaller than I expected. The pictures are also quite small as was the writing. I had expected much more of a picture book to sit and share with a toddler as opposed to this one. I am not sure how much use this book will get. It isn't ideal for sharing and once the toddler is big enough to read it herself she will no longer be interested in the young style fairies and stories.

Lovely book for children who like fairies. Bought it for my granddaughter who has just started reading on her own.

Perfect, because it was given along with a fairy garden. My granddaughter is a good early reader, but this will also challenge her in the right way. (She's just turned 5 and finished reception class)
