Oxford Reading Tree: Level 4: More Songbirds Phonics: My Cat by Julia Donaldson

Written by award-winning author Julia Donaldson, Songbirds Phonics are highly decodable, beautifully illustrated real stories. In My Cat, the cat keeps getting in the way! The Level 4 More Songbirds phonics books revise all phonics previously covered in Songbirds Levels 1+, 2 and 3. They reinforce the different spelling patterns for the long vowel sounds taught in Songbirds Level 4, for example 'ai' as in 'train.' In addition the spelling patterns 'wr' and 'kn' are taught. The invaluable inside cover notes enable parents/carers and teaching assistants to support children's word recognition and comprehension. Also available: * More Songbirds Level 4 Pack of 6 * More Songbirds Level 4 Class Pack of 36 * Level 3-4 eSongbirds Phonics CD-ROM, featuring e-versions of much-loved Songbirds stories for your interactive whiteboard, with audio activities and animations for consolidation and reinforcement.

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.

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