I've never really been a big pirate fan, but this book was enjoyable. Easy to read independently, didn't take me long to finish, as it was an easy read. I really liked the illustrations, and the book was funny

AvaW read it aged 5
My daughter had this as her reading book from school. It was a lot longer than any other books she has had so far, and harder, but she managed it ok. There were only a couple of words she found hard, so needed help with. She got a bit bored of the story, it was also a bit repetitive, and she would say its already said that before.

I read it to AvaW aged 5 & to Whitehead aged 0
Love reading this book. My 5yr old has enjoyed it since she was younger, and now we read it together to my baby. We love the rhymes, and sometimes we sing the words. My daughter loves the peep holes, to see through to the next page. It's great for little ones learning to count, as they can count the different animals on each page.

It was quite a short book, so didn't take long to read. There wasn't many illustrations, but they helped bring the characters to life. I did enjoy the story, but it was over so quickly, would have preferred more length. I like Zac and his friend's, and what happened to the not so nice teacher, Mr Dawkin, was very funny.

Oxford Reading Tree: Level 6: Stories: Robin Hood
AvaW read it aged 5
My daughter read this independently with confidence. Its quite a long book, as it is aimed at those that can read well. It had harder words, but most she could red without help. She knows the characters from reading previous books from the oxford scheme, so she likes the characters. She has never heard of robin hood before, so it was new to her. The story didn't excite her like other books in the scheme have

I read it to AvaW aged 5 & to Whitehead aged 0
I got this from the library, as we have quite a few spot books at home, but not read this one. My 5year old read it to her little brother too, and she enjoyed lifting the flaps, which im sure her younger brother will like doing when he's a bit older.simple, like all the spot books are, but fun to read.

The bright colours on each page appealed to my baby. Would be good for toddlers who are learning their colours, and their words, as they Could name their colours and what they see on the pages. Simple and effective

I read it to AvaW aged 5 & to Whitehead aged 0
A lovely book I read to my 2 youngest (baby and my 5yr old). Its a lovely story, about 3bears who want to know if their mom has a favourite/loves them all the same. Its relatable to my daughter as I have 3 children, and its nice as she is at the age to understand the moral of the story. A lovely story about family love

I thought my daughter would enjoy this fairy tale jumble book when I saw it in the library. She knows both stories that are used in the story, so she enjoyed the storyline. She read it independently, only needing a bit of help with a couple of hard words. She enjoyed looking at the colourful illustrations

My daughter chose this from the library to read. She has never been into ballet, but just wanted to read the book, and she did enjoy reading it. She only needed help with one or two words in the book. My daughter's favourite part of the book, was the magic feather that helped the pink ballerina do things she couldn't before

My daughter had this book from school. She read it all without any assistance. It wasn't too long. She thought bits of the book were funny. She really liked at the end, there was a bit where it had pictures, and you had to put them in order to retell the story

I love Nick Sharratt, so as soon as I saw this in the library I got it to read to my little one, and I knew my 5yr old would enjoy reading it to her little brother too. Loved the bright, colourful illustrations. A simple, short book, with flaps to turn, which little ones would enjoy.

I read it to AvaW aged 5 & to Whitehead aged 0
This is such a fun, rhyming book. Lots of animals, getting ready for a party.so this book would help teaching toddlers different animals, you can get them to name the animals. We sometimes sing the rhymes as well. There is a hole cut out in each page, so you see a bit of the next page, my daughter loves guessing what's happening on the next page. There is lots to look at on the pages, and we do the actions to the story.

The Universe Rocks: Spacecraft and the Journey into Space
MicahW read it aged 9
I got this book from school. Space is my all time favourite interest, and I hadn't read this one before. I have a lot of general space books, but this one is just about spacecraft's, and journeying into space. I read some new facts, so that was good. I liked looking at the pictures , so I knew what I was reading about if I wasn't sure. There were some activities included in the book, like making things. I didn't make any, as I was just enjoying reading the information.

I enjoyed reading this book. It had lots of fun facts about the city I live in. I recognised lots of places in the book, which was cool, and had been to some of them. It was interesting to read, and I learnt some new things. I liked the old photos, so I could see what Birmingham was like before.
