We are delighted to share our NEW Core Book Guidance with you.

Helping Children Read

We love books and want our book collections to ignite your child’s imagination and creativity.

Core Books are an essential approach to how children learn to read.

Core Books are a set of books that children read again and again and know really well.

We read Core Books again and again and again with children.

This helps them become really familiar and confident in practising the storybook language so that they can retell and reenact the stories, the characters and words to get them ready for reading.
