Bouncy Ben thinks baths are brilliant, but his mother is not too keen on the resulting state of the bathroom.
This amusing story is a Stage 1 book in the Reading At Home programme, a carefully planned reading strand, designed to take children from the earliest stages of reading to reading whole sentences within a story context.
Bouncy Ben’s Bathtime features one line of simple, repetitive text on each spread, which combined with lively illustrations all help to make reading fun!

'Letterland' is the highly successful literacy scheme used in thousands of schools to teach young children to read and write. The 'Reading At Home' programme has been specially devised for parents to share in the success and enjoyment of Letterland at home and to give their children a head start at school.
There are three colour-coded stages to enable you to choose the books most suitable for your child:
• 'Stage 1' Reading together (Age 2-4)
This stage is designed for young children experiencing the written word for the first time. Each book is ideal for sharing and provides lots of opportunities to talk about words and pictures in context.
• 'Stage 2' Beginning to read (Age 3-6)
The stories at this Stage use pattern and rhyme along with key words to encourage an enjoyment of reading and to give your child the confidence to tackle words and short phrases by themselves.
• 'Stage 3' Now I can read (Age 5-7)
At this stage your child will be ready to put some of their newly acquired skills into practice. All the delightful stories included in Stage 3 will boost confidence and help to establish a lifelong love of books.
In 'Bouncy Ben's Bathtime', two or three year olds will enjoy listening to and joining in with the repetition of the story. If 'b' words, such as 'blowing bubbles' and 'building bridges' are emphasised, the child will begin to get a sense of initial sound recognition and the special sound of each letter can be explained.About the Author:
