Synopsis

Read at Home: Helping Your Child to Read Handbook by Kate Ruttle, Annemarie Young

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 Handbook gives practical advice on the stages children go through in Learning to Read. It explains the 5 early stages of reading development from listening to stories, to Getting Ready to Read (level 1), Starting to Read (level 2), Becoming a Reader (level 3), Building Confidence in Reading (level 4) to Reading with Confidence. At every step there are suggestions on how to support the child's reading and lots of easy games and activities that provide valuable reinforcement. This will give parents real confidence in supporting their child's reading in an enjoyable way. In addition there are questions parents often ask, a section on home/school links - invaluable for parents when a child starts school, and a full list of the 100 Common Words repeated and highlighted in the books. There are also website details and addresses for key literacy organizations in the UK.

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

Alexander Boxall – age 11

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

Emily Jacques

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

We love Lovereading as my 5 year old loves to read new books before anyone else has a chance, she says it makes reading exciting!

Tracey Chorley

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

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!

Jessica Cobbin – age 7

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