The Usborne Very First Reading series has been specially developed to help children learn to read.
Each book in this series introduces new letters or reading patterns, and reinforces material from previous books.
Designed for an adult and child to read together, the series combines lively rhyming stories with inspiring illustrations in order to build the skills and confidence that will encourage a lifelong enjoyment of reading.
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.
