It's never too early to start reading!

By moving children gently away from picture books and gradually increasing the amount of text on the page your child will naturally become comfortable taking the next step towards independent reading.

This selection of carefully chosen titles are perfect for sharing and reading together.

With short accessible chapters they are ideal for newly confident readers and are a perfect next step on your child's reading journey.

------------------------------------

In addition to this selection of fantastic early reader titles, do have a look at the Little Gems collection too. Little Gems, published by Barrington Stoke, are gorgeous early reader chapter books, written by the cream of children’s talent, with super-readable layouts and design, and a chunky friendly format.
