With simple rhyming text and phonic repetition, Usborne's Phonics Readers are specially designed to develop essential language skills and early reading. This month's new title is Lizard in a Blizzard which tells the story of Lizard, who is so desperate to see and feel snow that he decides to make it. The trouble is, once it starts to snow, he can't make it stop...
Our brand new listen and learn versions of the classic phonics tales allow children to press the buttons on the pages to hear the story read out loud and follow the words along on the pages. The two new titles are: Bug in a Rug Listen and Learn and Cow Takes a Bow Listen and Learn.
Usborne's Complete Dickens contains all of Charles Dickens' novels, and the novella A Christmas Carol, all skillfully retold and simplified for a young modern reader, with quotations from the original text throughout. A real treat for keen readers in any school classroom or library.
