“The best books for children ever”
I start buying some of these books for my 4 year old daughter, she totally loves them and her 7 year old sister that speaks Spanish loves them too. It was great seeing my daughters enjoy and learn the story by memory in 2 days. This collection is read every night and is the best. Thank you very much.
Your books have really broken down hard words for young children in my learning environment. Also, your rhyming books, GENIUS!!! My teacher, Mrs. G., loves your Reading Program. She thinks it is very likely to used at our school.
“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.”
