The Lovereading4Kids comment

This the second in Usborne’s Very First Reading series introduces the letters g o c k ck e u r. The sentences are a little longer than in book 1 and your child reads more words overall. The repetition of ‘I can’ on each double page helps to build your child’s confidence and increase reading stamina.

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 2: The Dressing Up Box by Mairi Mackinnon

The second 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.
