“No Key Stage 1 classroom should be without the whole set.”
Tremendous visual appeal of a quality that is unmatched by other early reading series. No Key Stage 1 classroom should be without the whole set.
The Usborne Beginners and Young Readers series are increasingly being recognized and celebrated as having both the production values, content, and visual and commercial appeal demanded by the home market, and also the clear structure supporting children's reading development that is desired by schools. In my opinion, the Usborne Beginners and Young Readers series are by far the most appealing and comprehensive reading development supports available, now offering a vast range of subjects.
An excellent series. Carefully designed to appeal to early readers, the books have accessible vocabulary and easy reading text, clear pictures, a contents page, index and glossary - all excellent for helping children to learn to use books for research. Short chunks of text and plenty of pictures make these books really fun to read.
Parents in Touch
This book tells us all about Romans who lived hundreds of years ago. I like the bit where it tells you that the owners swapped places with the slaves for the day... like the Usborne Beginners books because they tell you about a lot of interesting things, and the pictures are nice, some look real, some are drawn and others are cartoons.
