When my daughter first started school aged 4 years old I had big expectations of her, as I'm sure most parent's do. I was expecting her to learn to read and write no problem.
Unfortunately this was not the case. Whilst she excelled at number work she just could not make sense of words. By the end of Reception year she was only reading her name and was getting further and further behind in class.
Whilst browsing the net one day I came across the Oxford Reading Tree collection and it caught my interest as I knew they were the same books being used in my daughter's school.
They come in stage 1, 2 and 3 depending on the reading level of your child. I bought stage 1 as my daughter was a non-reader.
There are 6 books in the collection and they all follow the adventures of Biff, Chip and Kipper which are familar characters to my daughter as they are the books used at school.
Each book has a few easy to read words and the stories are very funny and appropriate to the age group they are aimed at. The pictures are nice to look and can be used to help tell the story.
At the back of the book are some parent's notes that explain to you the best way to teach your child to read.
I began by reading the books to my daughter and then teaching her some words used. It took just one week before she read the full book from start to finish.
The 6 books you recieve are labeled in difficulty order so it's easy to progress as the reading level improves.
My daughter is now 6 years old and is a fantastic reader!! I honestly believe that without the use of these books she would not be as confident a reader as she is today.
I now use these books for my younger son who has just started school and so far they are proving to be just as succesfull.
These books are fantastic for any parent wishing to improve their child's reading ability or just a nice bedtime story.
