Read it yourself with Ladybird is one of Ladybird’s best-selling reading series. For over thirty-five years it has helped young children who are learning to read develop and improve their reading skills.
Each Read yourself book is very carefully written to include many keys, high-frequency words that are vital for learning to read, as well as a limited number of story words that are introduced and practiced throughout. Simple sentences and frequently repeated words help to build the confidence of beginner readers and the four different levels of books support children from very first reading practice through to independent, fluent reading.
There are more than ninety titles in the Read it yourself series, ranging from classic fairy tales and traditional world stories to favorite children’s brands such as Peppa Pig, Kung Fu Panda, and Peter Rabbit. A range of first reference titles completes the series, with information books about favorite subjects that even the most reluctant readers will enjoy.
Each book has been carefully checked by educational consultants and can be read independently at home or used in a guided reading session at school. Further content includes comprehension questions or puzzles, helpful notes for parents, carers, and teachers, and book band information for use in schools.
Dash is Fab! is a Level 0 Read it yourself book, designed for children who are developing their synthetic phonics skills. Books 1 to 12 introduce letters and sounds in a systematic order.
