Give the Gift of Reading
Usborne Very First Reading takes beginner readers from learning their first letters to reading imaginative stories on their own with minimal support and guidance from an adult. Each book in the series builds on material in the previous books.
A full set of fifteen books is available in a slipcase, accompanied by a parents' guide. Find out how to buy the boxed set in our online catalogue.
