Preparing to Read: Alphabet Resources Teacher's Guide American English Edition by Gill Budgell, Kate Ruttle

The Alphabet Resources Teacher's Guide lays the foundations for the phonics skills strand of Cambridge Reading. It can also be used to complement any other phonics programme. Firmly based on sound early years teaching techniques, it supports the Cambridge Alphabet books and the Alphabet Flipover book through activities which foster speaking and listening skills. The letters and sounds are systematically taught, and children are asked to use their growing knowledge of the alphabet as a key literacy skill. The book contains practical suggestions for using the Cambridge Alphabet Books and the Alphabet Flipover book, a suggested teaching sequence for the sounds and letters of the alphabet and ideas for encouraging home-school links. It is accompanied by a separate book of Blackline Masters.

At @HHSHaringey we love @lovereading4kids because our pupils can practice reviewing & get free upcoming books before anyone else!

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

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

It’s really exciting to read and review new books, thrilling to see my reviews online and I love finding the final published copies on sale.

Sam Harper – age 10

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

It’s a community united by a passion for books and promoting the best there is in children’s literature.

Sam Bateman and family

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.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.
