Charlie and Lola: You Won't Like This Present as Much as I Do - Read it Yourself with Ladybird Level 3 by Lauren Child

Charlie's little sister Lola wants to buy a good present for her friend Lotta's birthday. But when Lola sees something she really wants for herself, will Lotta's present be forgotten? Read it yourself with Ladybird is one of Ladybird's best-selling series. For over thirty-five years it has helped young children who are learning to read develop and improve their reading skills. Each Read it yourself book is very carefully written to include many key, high-frequency words that are vital for learning to read, as well as a limited number of story words that are introduced and practised throughout. Simple sentences and frequently repeated words help to build the confidence of beginner readers and the four different levels of books support children all the way from very first reading practice through to independent, fluent reading. The wide range of classic fairy tales, favourite characters and exciting modern stories in the Read it yourself series appeal to all children, whatever their interests, and have bright, detailed pictures to help support the text. Each book has been carefully checked by educational consultants and can be read independently at home or used in a guided reading session at school. Further content includes comprehension puzzles, helpful notes for parents, carers and teachers, and book band information for use in schools. Charlie and Lola: You Won't Like This Present as Much as I Do is a Level 3 Read it yourself title, suitable for children who are developing reading confidence and stamina, and are eager to start reading longer stories with a wider vocabulary.
