'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 establish a lifelong love of books.
