The perfect starter books for a child who is learning to read. I've read these with my nephew and he really enjoyed them and gave him confidence with reading. Now he's well on his way with reading I've popped them away for my son for when he's older. I'm so happy with this collection!

This is a really lovely box set that has 5 books in it.  'A gold star for George' - my favourite, ' Grumpy King Colin', 'I wish I'd been born a unicorn', 'Pirates don't drive diggers', and 'The four little pigs'.  I found that my 4 year old loved the pictures in each book, and my 6 year old could easily read the books to herself.  Each book has a little quiz at the end that was fun to do together too.  I would say they are suitable for children in year R, and would help with learning to read.  They would also make a wonderful present for either a boy or girl.

This is absolutely brilliant set of books for a child who is learning to read! Our little boy is in reception at the moment and every night he has picked one of the 5 books included in the set and read one out on his own, first slower by sounding out the phonics and then blending them into a word. Nothing beats the proud face of a little boy when he gets it right. 
The stories are just enough simple and short not to overload and make it into a task, illustrations are colourful and funny and the stories itself are a great read.

This is a great collection of books. My 5 year old has and still is enjoying reading them with and without me. He likes the different stories and the illustrations are fantastic. Ideal for a beginner reader.

These are a lovely set of stories which are just the right length to keep a child 4 and above interested. My 5 year old is able to read some of the words and they are lovely to read together. My daughter particularly enjoyed the unicorn story.

My son really loved these books and got him reading to me and on his own.  The stories were interesting and he loved the quiz at the end of each book to check that he had understood and remembered what he had been reading.

A nice selection of five short picture books for early readers presented as a gift set. The stories are written in a nice clear font, which is quite large and the books themselves are clearly colour banded for the three different reading levels. I read the stories aloud to my children as they can't read themselves yet and we liked the different stories a lot. Each book has a quiz at the end and the children enjoyed answering the questions and it was a great way for me to check they had understood what had happened in each one. Our favourite story was Pirates Don't Drive Diggers and even my two year old can join in with it due to the repetition. I will revisit this set as my children start to read independently.
