The Children's Laureate and bestselling author of The Gruffalo, Julia Donaldson has carefully created the Songbirds Phonics series to support parents and teachers in helping children learning to read. Julia Donaldson has captivated children all over the world with her lively and engaging stories.

This Stage 4 Songbirds collection contains 6 exciting phonics stories in 1! These are perfect for parents to read at home with their kids to establish a really strong love of reading and to build confidence.
Julia Donaldson says: "Creating the 'Songbirds' series was an enormous challenge of my favourite kind. Almost every word in every book had to be phonically decodable, and yet I wanted to write real stories which children would enjoy reading. I was determined also that the content and illustrations should be as varied as possible, as I know how children’s tastes differ and how monotonous some reading schemes can be. So some of the stories are in prose, some in rhyme, some are realistic and others fantastical."
