Books to help your child to read
Here are six fabulously fun titles for early readers
Read Me Beginners, Walker, £3.99
This collection features everyone from a queen who wants to brighten things up to a caveman by the name of Dave, to aunties with their own style sense and pointy-hatted princesses, who are stuck indoors on a rainy day.
What’s the format? Six books written in rhyme with simple vocabulary and bright illustrations by Nick Sharratt.
What’s the story? Original ideas with rhymes used to humorous effect. For example, “Caveman Dave lives in a cave, He doesn’t wash and he doesn’t shave, He’s very smelly, but very brave…” The stories often have a surprise at the end.
We love The brilliant cartoon-style images.
Any extras? Not for this series, but Nick Sharratt has illustrated lots of brilliant books suitable for early readers like the Daisy books written by Kes Gray.
Perfect for… Those with a keen sense of humour who like to have fun with rhyme.
