Book pages Oxford Reading Tree: Level 3: Stories: A Cat in the Tree
Oxford Reading Tree: Level 3: Stories: A Cat in the Tree
AvaW read it aged 4
My daughter had this from school for her reading book. She really enjoys the biff, chip and kipper books. It was quite a short book, 16 pages but the sentences were very short, so she read it very quickly. She could easily read it independently, needing no assistance with the words. She found it a bit too easy. She liked the story, and thought it was funny when Wilma's dad got stuck up the tree trying to get the cat down.

There's A House Inside My Mummy Board Book
I read it to nursery job aged 2 to 4
The children (mainly 3 and 4 in this particular class) love this book, they never get fed up of it. Its nice as there are a couple of children whose moms are pregnant, so they can relate, but even the ones whose parents aren't pregnant enjoy it just as much. It is a nice way to talk about a mom being pregnant, in a way that relates to ago child. And its great that it features an older sibling. This would be a fab book to read to a young child who was going to become a big brother or sister.

Book pages The Tale Of Peter Rabbit
The Tale Of Peter Rabbit
I read it to AvaW aged 4
My daughter was really excited to read this, as she likes Peter Rabbit, and watches it on the tv. We have recently watched the Peter Rabbit film at the cinema, so she wants to read the book all the time now. We loved the size of the book, great for little hands. My daughter read bits of the book herself, but when we read it, mostly I read it to her. She enjoys the story, and likes to mae comparisons to the film we saw

Book pages Magic Puppy: Twirling Tails
Magic Puppy: Twirling Tails
I read it to AvaW aged 4
My daughter chose this book from the library. She liked the front cover with the cute dog, as she likes animals. I read the book with her, and she joined in with bits that she could read. In this story, Kirsten has a magic puppy for a friend, who helps her become friends with her best friend again. The chapters were pretty short, and only a handful of basic black and white illustrations, but my daughter didn't mind the lack of illustrations as she was enjoying the story.

Book pages Rainbow Magic: Elodie the Lamb Fairy: The Baby Farm Animal Fairies Book 2
Rainbow Magic: Elodie the Lamb Fairy: The Baby Farm Animal Fairies Book 2
I read it to AvaW aged 4
My daughter chose this book from the library. We had recently been to the farm to feed lambs, so when she saw the front cover she wanted to read this story. In the story, Elodie the fairy looks after lambs, but Jack frost casts a spell on one, and he starts to miaow like a cat. Elodie's friends help her to get the lambs baa back. The whole book is quite short, very short chapters, with black and with illustrations on most pages. My daughter liked the characters.

Rainbow Magic: Shelley the Sherbet Fairy: The Candy Land Fairies Book 4
I read it to AvaW aged 4
My daughter got this from the library, as she had read another book from the rainbow magic series which she enjoyed. She likes the characters, as they are fairies. The fairy in this story is a sherbet fairy, but again Jack frost pops up and causes trouble. It is a short story, so great length for a 4yr old to listen to.

Book pages Rainbow Magic: Tiana the Toy Fairy: The Land of Sweets: Toys AndMe Special Edition 2
Rainbow Magic: Tiana the Toy Fairy: The Land of Sweets: Toys AndMe Special Edition 2
I read it to AvaW aged 4
My daughter  chose this book as she read the front cover, and said she liked Tiana. Tiana is the toy fairy from the land of sweets. We read the book pretty quickly as its not that long. My daughter enjoyed the chapter about the land of sweets, as everything was made out of sweets, like the soil was crumbled cookies, flowers were lollipops etc. 
It said that the character was inspired by the YouTube sensation Tiana, so we looked her up on YouTube after, which my daughter enjoyed.

Book pages From Seed to Sunflower
From Seed to Sunflower
I read it to AvaW aged 4
My daughters next topic at school is growing things. She was asked to see if she could find any information books about growing at the library, and we found this one, which is aimed at children. We always grow a sunflower each year so she knew about this, and what you had to do. There is a contents page, as it covered various areas like seeds, leaves, buds, bees, life cycle etc. The pictures were very helpful, so they can see what everything looks like that they are talking about in the book. It was very informative and we learnt some new things too

Plants
I read it to AvaW aged 4
My daughter got this from the library, as her next topic is going to be growing things. This was an information booked aimed at children, but it was more for older children, not 4yr olds. We still looked at the book together,. There was a contents page, so could skip to whichever area you wanted first, such as growth, seeds, plant parts, what plants need, photosynthesis. A lot of the content was too complex for a 4yr old, but some bits were ok, and I could explain things to her so she understood.

Book pages Rigby Star Guided Y1/P2 Blue Level: The Terrible Tiger (6 Pack) Framework Edition
Rigby Star Guided Y1/P2 Blue Level: The Terrible Tiger (6 Pack) Framework Edition
AvaW read it aged 4
My daughter got this from school as her reading book. There were a couple of challenging words in the book for her, the rest she read no problem. Might not be the best book to read to little ones, especially at bed time, as the story is about a tiger under the little boys ber that is scaring him. In the end though, he realises the tiger is actually a teddy.

Book pages 101 Fun Outdoor Activities for Children
101 Fun Outdoor Activities for Children
I read it to MicahW aged 8 & to AvaW aged 4
We all enjoyed looking at this together. Micah has read it by himself top, but when we first got it we all looked at it together. We went through the whole book. Some of the activities we had already done, and the children picked activities they would like to do. I also pointed out things in the book that I had done as a child. We have already done some of the activities from the book such as tree rubbing, daisy chains, etc but we are waiting for the weather to get better, then we can do a lot more. There were different activities to suit everyone, and for all ages, things both my 4yr old and 8yr old can do. There were things we wouldn't have thought of doing, and my children love doing things outdoors so they were really interested in it. There were plenty of things you could do in the garden as well. I think this book is fab, a big thumbs up from the whole family.

AvaW read it aged 4
My daughter had this from school. She loved the oxford reading tree books and the characters. In this story it is winter  and Anneena knits a scarf. She ends up using it to rescue a boy that has fallen in the ice. My daughter could read it independently without any help. A good length reading book for confident readers.

I read it to nursery job aged 2 to 4
I read this to a group of children at nursery, aged 3 to 4. They chose it for me to read. They really enjoyed the story, and listened to it well. They thought it was funny that little princess didn't want to go to bed, and kept making excuses as to why she couldn't sleep. At the end of the book, the children were discussing whether they liked going to bed or not.
