Read at Home: Level 3b: The Real Floppy by Roderick Hunt

Floppy isn't allowed on the beach, so Dad, Biff, Chip and Kipper make Mum a surprise. Read at Home is a new series designed for young, beginner readers. It features all the popular Oxford Reading Tree characters in 12 exciting stories specially written for parents to support their children's reading at home. These entertaining stories, with real life and fantasy adventures, are carefully graded across 4 levels, and contain built-in progression and vocabulary repetition throughout. The Real Floppy is Level 3b for children becoming a reader - those children who can recognize 10-20 words by sight, can read simple sentences, and know all the initial letter sounds. The story is written with a simple sentence structure and vocabulary repetition with two to three sentences per page. Level 3 corresponds roughly to Oxford Reading Tree stage 3-4.


The series was fully endorsed in research carried out in parental focus groups.

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

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.
