We got ourselves a reader!
I was a little stunned to find that my daughter was 'reading' out loud from this book as soon as she picked it up. Okay, so she is no reading prodigy it turns out, they just have a set at her nursery, so she is quite familiar with the story and was 'reading the pictures'. Great that it captured her imagination so fast though. According to her nursery they have been a big hit. We both appreciated the artwork, me for the modern quirky pictures and she for the way they show children imagining different dressing up adventures. I like the way the book swaps between a page for parent to read and a page for the child to read so that reading together is really emphasised. The themes of the whole series look varied and appealing (space, zoo, pirates, animals, circus). The system is based on learning to read with synthetic phonics. As always with Usborne books, eyecatching and enticing. If you are trying to teach a child to read I would recommend.
