Developed by the experts at Collins, this bumper collection of Big Cat Reading Lions early readers books is ideal for introducing children aged 5 years and over to the wonderful world of reading and helping to support their reading development at home.
Covering reading levels 1-3, each one of the 18 books has been created with leading children's authors and illustrators - and carefully levelled by educational experts - to ensure that they are not only thoroughly entertaining, but perfectly pitched to aid progression and encourage them along their reading journey.
From first reading books through to books for reading with adult support, this collection of Big Cat Reading Lions books includes both fiction and non-fiction books to make sure there is something to grab the interest of every child.
Please note the books in this collection cover the first three reading levels of the Collins Big Cat scheme:
Level 1 (First Reading) Decoding simple, short sentences, practising limited, specific phonemes, with very few tricky words.
Level 2 (Practice Reading) Applying decoding skills on longer sentences with new phonemes, direct speech with more tricky words.
Level 3 (Supported Reading) Reading with adult support, longer, less illustrated texts, with paragraphs, literary language and distinctive characterisation.
