LoveReading View on Sports Day: A Bloomsbury Young Reader

Book Band: White Ideal for ages 6+

This new series from Bloomsbury Education is geared at turning children into independent readers. Not only will the books give youngsters a boost into solo reading, they’ll also make it easier and more enjoyable for the adults helping children as they come with useful tips and notes. The books are short and divided into chapters thereby breaking the story into manageable chunks. The adventures are lively and fast-moving though told via short sentences and carefully chosen vocabulary: some words are highlighted in the Tips for Grown Ups section on the inside cover, so that children can learn them and their meanings. Full colour illustrations amplify the action and make the books really attractive to look at too. Written by favourite authors, these are well worth collecting and are just the thing for children ready for reading.

Sports Day: A Bloomsbury Young Reader Synopsis

Emmie's school is having a big sports day and everyone has to choose an event to take part in. There are running races, long jump, an egg-and-spoon race, and even the three-legged race. But Emmie isn't sure what to choose and she is sure that she is going to come in last... This fun and sporty adventure from author Jane Lawes is perfect for children who are learning to read by themselves and for Key Stage 1. It features engaging illustrations by Sarah Jennings and relatable characters young readers will find hard to resist.

Sports Day: A Bloomsbury Young Reader Press Reviews

Every child needs a Bloomsbury Young Reader. Fun, stretching, just the right length, full of adventurous vocabulary and punctuation, [with] tips to support the parent or carer at home or the teacher who needs inspiration at the end of a busy day. - Julie-Ann McCulloch, Specialist EAL Teacher, Stockport Local Authority

I like that the books do have messages and characters you can empathise with, but I also like that they are a light and breezy read, that there is enjoyable, playful language, humour and that they are not dull! - Katie Potter, mother of Bethan, aged 6
