Some books were just made for sharing! And if they give a child the confidence to read alone, it will be a major step on their road to independence. So Usborne have come up with the ideal solution – a series of exciting and beautifully illustrated books specially developed to offer a structured and methodical programme of reading. Whether you are a parent, a carer or a teacher, you can be sure that the Very First Reading books will turn learning into an adventure.

Lancashire Evening Post

A fantastic new series of enjoyable and fun books for you to share with your child. This series is an excellent complement to your child's school curriculum.

Families Journal

Thank you, Usborne, for producing a series of books that really work, that see story and content as important as skill level, and are genuinely engaging for children (and adults- I’m having a great time too!) Thank you for teaching my daughter to read.
