Crack reading and make confident and enthusiastic readers with this fantastic reading programme. Seven steps take beginners from simply written folk stories told in 150 words through to lovers of classic and original stories and histories, biographies and classics told in 5,000 words. Colour-coded for ease of use, and presented in a beautiful hardback, every story is well-written and attractively illustrated in full colour by leading artists.
