Reviews

As a class teacher I taught phonics and saw first hand the success of this fun, child-centred approach to teaching literacy. Consequently I was committed to introducing the scheme into Dovers Green...It is pacey because the children follow a similar format each day and easy for the teacher as there is very little preparation. (Dover's Green Primary School) It's fun! The children enjoy it and ask to do it. We've seen significant improvement in children's ability to apply phonic knowledge to reading regular words and attempting more complete words. Independence with this has increased also. Teachers have seen improved reading ability (scores) compared to previous years. (Springfield Junior School) Collins Big Cat Phonics author Kay Hiatt was recently featured in a TES article on Stoughton Infant school, Guildford, where her programme has been used since 2003. The number of pupils reaching Level 2 at age 7 has since increased from 89% to 95%. (TES, 24/3/06)

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.

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

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
