“Good story for bedtime”
My little girl (2 years,1 month) loves books and I wanted to find something a bit longer to read at bed time. I found this one which is for beginner readers. It's perfect, not too many words and plenty of detail in the pictures. She thinks it's great and sits there 'reading' it to her soft toys.

Press reviews

“For every parent, child and teacher weary of the monotony of the average reading scheme, Usborne’s First Reading series will offer rays of sunlight. The books are carefully levelled and offer a huge variety of accessible and fun, fiction and non-fiction.”
