Trouble Under the Ocean First Reading Books for 3-5 Year Olds by Nicola Baxter

Join Anna and Fred as they dive beneath the waves...and into a whole lot of trouble! Silly situations, repeated vocabulary and bright pictures on every page help children to feel confident as they build up their reading skills. It introduces words such as anchor, crab, treasure and shark - all of which are encountered by Anna and Fred. Learning to read will be no trouble with this exciting and amusing adventure. This story of trouble underwater makes reading fun. The book can be used in several ways to help young readers to gain confidence. Start by reading the illustrated words at the edge of each left-hand page with your child. Have fun trying to spot the same terms within the story itself, as Anna and Fred face all manner of deep-sea creatures, including a mischievous octopus, a friendly dolphin and a nippy little lobster. Finally, all the illustrated phrases can be found at the back of the book. Enjoy checking all the words that you can now read together!
