Help Your Child to Read with These Educational Books

It’s National Storytelling week this week, and as we’re learning first hand in our house at the moment, learning to read can be a very challenging but extremely satisfying task for your child. It’s also a lovely way to spend time with your little one – exploring the world of fiction together. We’ve come up with a list of books designed to help teach your child to read; these are aimed at both early readers as well as those who are more confident.

All the books we’ve included have been awarded a level or are part of a colour coding system so you can match the books to your child’s specific reading level. Reading Chest, the fabulous book rental service for reading scheme books for 4-9 year olds have a great guide to the different levels here.
