The first title in the new "Usborne Very First Reading" series, designed for younger children to introduce them to reading together with their parents. Parents and children take turns to read from the page (the text clearly marked for who should be reading) and as the books progress in the series the adults read less and less and the child more and more. There are puzzles at the end to check the child's understanding of the text and guidance notes for the parents. Beautiful illustrations help to motivate beginner readers.
'If you want a great set of reading books for little'uns who have just started learning to read, look no further. This is inspired' - The Independent; 'Some books were just made for sharing! And if they give a child the confidence to read alone, it will be a major step on their road to independence. So Usborne have come up with the ideal solution - a series of exciting and beautifully illustrated books specially developed to offer a structured and methodical programme of reading. Whether you are a parent, a carer or a teacher, you can be sure that the Very First Reading books will turn learning into an adventure' - Lancashire Evening Post; 'A fantastic new series of enjoyable and fun books for you to share with your child. This series is an excellent complement to your child's school curriculum' - Families Journal; 'Thank you, Usborne, for producing a series of books that really work, that see story and content as important as skill level, and are genuinely engaging for children (and adults- I'm having a great time too!) Thank you for teaching my daughter to read' - Rhino Reads
