This is a lovely short story. As part of the Oxford Reading Tree Songbirds series it is perfect for those learning to read and for young readers trying to improve their vocabulary. There are lots of tips on how best to read the story and discuss it together as well as tips on practising the phonics covered in the text. As a Stage 4 book the sentences are slightly longer and the vocabulary and sounds slightly more complex. The story itself is entertaining and there are some colourful illustrations. We enjoyed this book.

So happy to have a book with an interesting idea for my son to read and for me to listen to. As usual Julia Donaldson knows how to do this. It's a Stage 4 book (blue level in our school) so it does have longer sentences and on some pages 3 lines. It mainly focuses on phonics "ai" (as in train) and "ai", "ay", "a-e" and "a" letter patterns. Also my son still confuses "b" and "d" and this one had various cases of words with them.

Dex bought this home from school to help him with his phonics. He found the illustrations wonderful as they were bright and very eye-catching.

The story is simple and the book isn't that long, which is great for kids who are just learning to read.
