Pirate Pat allows the very beginner reader to take part in a lively and exciting story, using short sentences and simple words made up of only the letters s a t p i n m d. Parent or carer reads the first three lines on each double page, setting up a rhyming pattern, and your child then reads the last line. The objective of the 15 books in the Very First Reading series is to enthuse your child through rhyme to learn and to enjoy the art of reading and to read with confidence and enthusiasm, which in turn will result in reading becoming a lifetime’s pleasure. Each book builds on material from the previous ones and together with the rhyming stories there are some superb illustrations in a range of different styles. You can also purchase all 15 in one boxed set together with a Parents’ Guide to the series. This series is ideal to compliment learning to read as the child starts school or even beforehand to give them a head start before they actually start school.

Three titles in the popular First Reading series are re-issued with hardback covers with audio CDs inserted into a wallet inside the back cover, making the book and CD easy to store together. The Young Reading series is developed with reading expert Alison Kelly from Roehampton University to help young readers grow in confidence and ability.
First Reading: Level Four. A classic tale of 3 bears and a rather picky little girl re told for younger readers. Building readers’ stamina still further with all 48 pages devoted to the story (up to 750 words). The narrative is more developed, there is more text on the page, and sentence structure and vocabulary are more descriptive. Original fiction, folk tales and fairytales coupled with terrific illustrations will provide plenty of variety for the reader. Will be enjoyed with equal enthusiasm if read alone or together with a parent.
