The Lovereading4Kids comment

Moon Zoom introduces and practises longer words that begin or end with more than one consonant and simple two-syllable words. This stage almost doubles your child’s reading vocabulary. Your child should now be trying to read the whole story, but may need help with a word here and there. 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 8: Moon Zoom by Lesley Sims

The eighth 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.

About the Author

Lesley has written ever since she can remember. After winning prizes for English at school, she went on to study law at university because her mother insisted she had something to fall back on.

She qualified as a barrister but realised she didn't want to spend her life in a wig. She was also writing short stories when she should have been revising for her Bar Finals, another clue that she wasn't cut out for legal life. Instead, she joined a small publishing company and edited their directory of the legal profession.

In 1993, Usborne Publishing advertised for a fiction editor in their Oxford office and she leapt at the chance. She transferred to the London office in 1995, writing puzzle fiction and humorous history books. Her "Visitor's Guide to Ancient Rome", a spoof tourist guide to the city, won the Times Educational Supplement Senior Information Book Award in 2000. She is now a managing editor in charge of the Young and First Reading Series, Handbooks and Treasuries, among others.

When she isn't writing or editing, Lesley loves watching plays and films, learning to tap dance, taking long walks beside the Thames and playing her tenor sax in a jazz band. Her favourite colour is purple.

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.

This company is amazing; not only is it is a great opportunity to get books and review them but everyone is so friendly and supportive!

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

Alexander Boxall – age 11

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
