The Lovereading4Kids comment

The Monster Diner introduces different ways of pronouncing letters or letter-combinations your child has already met in their more regular forms such as ‘a’ in apricot, ask or was, ‘i’ as in kind, ‘o’ as in open or month, ‘u’ as in put, ‘ea’ as in bread, ‘ear’ as in earth, ‘ie’ as in shriek and ‘or’ as in worm. The objective of the 15 books in the Very First Reading series is to enthuse your child through rhyme to learn and to enjoy the art of reading and to read with confidence and enthusiasm, which in turn will result in reading becoming a lifetime’s pleasure. Each book builds on material from the previous ones and together with the rhyming stories there are some superb illustrations in a range of different styles. You can also purchase all 15 in one boxed set together with a Parents’ Guide to the series. This series is ideal to compliment learning to read as the child starts school or even beforehand to give them a head start before they actually start school.

Synopsis

Usborne Very First Reading 13: The Monster Diner by Mairi Mackinnon

The thirteenth 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.

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

Emily Jacques

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

Erica Motoc, age 7

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

It’s a community united by a passion for books and promoting the best there is in children’s literature.

Sam Bateman and family

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

Georgie Rowe – age 16

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
