Oxford Reading Tree: Song Book and CD by Jan Holdstock

The Oxford Reading Tree Song Book and CD presents Biff, Chip, and all the favourite Reading Tree characters in 48 catchy songs and activities based on the stories from Stages 1, 2, and 3. The CD can be copied on to cassette for classroom work. No musical knowledge is required.


Many teachers have found that songs help to develop children's reading skills by reinforcing their sense of rhyme, repetition and rhythm. This, combined with Jan Holdstock's skill in writing children's songs, makes this Oxford Reading Tree Song Book and CD an attractive literacy support resource for Key Stage 1. It is also a delightful song book in its own right which can be used by all teachers, whether or not they have specialist knowledge of music. Music Teacher, September 99
