Rigby Star Guided 1 Blue Level: Josie's New Coat Pupil Book (single)
AvaW read it aged 4
My daughter had this from school for her reading book. She had no problem reading it independently, and there were no words she found difficult. The story was pretty basic, so my daughter wasn't that into the story. She liked looking at the different coats in the illustrations though.

Book pages See Inside Space
See Inside Space
MicahW read it aged 8
I chose this myself from the bookshop. I love information books about space, and I have quite a few. I didn't have this one, so chose it as I like the Usborne books, and liked that it was lift the flap, as it makes it more interesting, rather than just reading, you get to see what's underneath the flap. There is a contents page, so you can skip to certain pages if you want, ot just read it In order. I read it in order, but then went back to bits I was more interested in when I read it again. There are lots of facts, and I learnt new things. I liked at the back it gave you a map of the stars. I enjoyed the bits about the milky way and space travel the best. It is a book I will read many times over.

AvaW read it aged 4
My daughter had this from school for her reading book. It features a variety of different animals, which my daughter liked. It is 16pages ling, but not very long as there are only a couple of sentences on each page. My daughter could read it no problem, needed no help with any words. My daughter enjoyed looking at the illustrations as well.

Ant and Snail: Band 02a/Red a
AvaW read it aged 4
My daughter enjoyed the story about the ant and snail in a race. The story reminded me of the tortoise and the hare story. My daughter could read it on her own with no assistance, and the words were no problem for her. She enjoyed looking at the pictures too. We spoke about helping others and being kind to others in need, after reading the book

Space, Stars and Slimy Aliens
MicahW read it aged 8
I was looking forward to reading this, as it was to do with space, which I love reading about. Also I've read a couple of other horrible history books, which I enjoyed. There is a contents page, so if you wanted you can skip to the areas that interest you more, but I read it in order. It was interesting to read. There was a quiz which was fun, and it told you the answers after, so I could see how many I got right. It wasn't just a fact book, the information was told in different ways, like a comic, cartoon, quiz, diagrams etc so it made it more fun and appealing.

Book pages Summer Storm
Summer Storm
AvaW read it aged 4
My daughter had this from school, as her reading book. It is about a summer storm, and focuses on thunder and lightning and how storms form. My daughter could read it well, there were only a couple of challenging words. She found the book a bit boring, as it wasn't something she is interested in.

Book pages At the Dentist
At the Dentist
AvaW read it aged 4
A girl called Pippa goes to the dentist. It details what happens, and how the dentist checks her teeth. There are pictures which showed each step. My daughter was able to read it with no help needed, and she could relate as she goes to the dentist. Would be a good book for 4 to 5yr olds to read, or be read to, if they had never been to the dentist before.

Bug Club Phonics Bug Alphablocks Set 11 Is it a Monster?
AvaW read it aged 4
My daughter had this as her reading book from school.
The alphablocks can hear a weird noise upstairs, and they aren't sure if its a monster. My daughter liked this book as she has watched the alphablocks on tv before, so she knew them  and she likes how the alphablocks spells the words out.

Book pages Where's the Unicorn?: A Magical Search-and-Find Book
Where's the Unicorn?: A Magical Search-and-Find Book
AvaW read it aged 4
My daughter chose this book herself. She saw the cover, and as she loves unicorns it appealed to her. I explained to her what the book was, and she had a look inside, and she liked it. It is basically like a wheres wally book, but with unicorns. On each page, there is a different scene, and there are 7 unicorns to find on each page. My daughter really enjoyed this activity book, and I did too, as I was looking for the unicorns myself. At the back there are also other things it asks if you can spot on each page. My daughter has done this book a few times. You forget where the unicorns are on each page, so you can do it over. It is a fun search and find book

A A Letter from Dorset
AvaW read it aged 4
Lara goes on holiday to Dorset, and she writes a letter to her Gran. My daughter enjoyed the book, as she could relate to things in it from when we have been on holiday. She enjoyed reading about the fun things Lara got up to. She could read the book with no assistance, and she enjoyed looking at the pictures.

Book pages Ruby Rides An Elephant
Ruby Rides An Elephant
I read it to AvaW aged 4
My daughter likes to read the blurb of a book, so from reading that she was looking forward to hearing the story, as she liked that Ruby was going on holiday and that she makes friends with an elephant. My daughter didn't know anything about Sri Lanka, so we spoke a bit about there as well, and I showed her where it was on our earth globe. My daughter liked the colourful illustrations, and she liked that Ruby was mixed race, as she also is. It was nice to see and read about the different things they did and saw in Sri Lanka, that is different to what we do England.
