The Lovereading4Kids comment
Mr. Mystery introduces combinations such as gh as in though or pronounced f as in laugh and endings such as –sion and –tion. It also gives children practice in reading longer three or even four syllable words. Your child will now have an excellent all-round foundation to develop reading independence and confidence. 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.
What next? – Once children are confident with all the titles in the Very First Reading series of 15 books, they will have a sound basis to start reading more widely. Usborne has a terrific series that compliments the Very First Reading series, called Usborne First Reading. This series has a huge range of stories and non-fiction, graded into four levels according to the length and difficulty of the text. They each continue to be brilliantly written and illustrated and they’ll support a child’s reading development and continuing enthusiasm.

Usborne Very First Reading 15: Mr Mystery by Mairi Mackinnon
The fifteenth 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.
