The Lovereading4Kids comment

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. This is the boxed set containing all 15 books 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.
