    about a very busy toad!16 high quality shiny pages, in the popular 2-page spread format with endearing illustrations throughout and 2 sturdy fold-out flap opportunities. Numbered pages.Simple text with plenty of repetition of words, e.g.:-'Toad hops happily.She has a new house on the hill."My new house is best," she boasts.Toad waits and waits for the truck to bring her things.Time ticks on....She's out of luck.Where is that truck....'where indeed......I wonder if you can guess?And..... after a busy day....Toad is very tired when she flops into bed...but the problems have only just begun with the new house on the hill! But this is a very clever toad.........!From Usborne Publishing, this super book is part of a series of 12.This delightful educational series is further enhanced by the little yellow duck 'hiding' on each page - young children love to find him on every turn! In this particular book that little yellow duck appears to have a friend who is also evident on most of the pages!This series of books have a 'familiar feel`, with the presence of characters from the other titles in the series, further aiding recognition skills and confidence building.Within the illustrations are lots of opportunities to discuss what else is going on, in the pictures.The inside cover page describes 'About Phonics' in relation to this specific title and the inside back cover has the list of words used in the text, broken down into their phonemes.From the back cover:-'Created in consultation with a language expert, this book is part of an engaging phonics-based series, especially written to help your child learn to read.Not only is the story great fun, it also takes into account recent research on the most effective ways of teaching reading.Stephen Cartwright's delightful illustrations complement the text and are designed to stimulate further interest. Fold out pages add to the enjoyment.......'

    I have a 5/6 yr old son and he is finding these just the right pitch for his reading level (not one of the best but not the worst either). He really gets on well with the way they are laid out and the books really mix up the phonic sounds (oi, ea, ar, etc.) Would highly recommend for reception/yr1 children who need a bit more than just the one book they bring home from school.

    Who says learning can't be fun? The recent trend for using phonics to help burgeoning readers has reaped dividends in my household; this range of lively and colourful paperbacks has made no little contribution either. This one, Fox in a box and Hen's Pens are my (and my childrens') favourites!

    This book was in poorer condition than expected. Some pages were dirty and some of the lift up flaps were torn.Very disappointed

    Great little story, my 6 yr old loves it and is practicing his reading and phonics at the same time! Ideal :-)

    My grandchildren love these bright and colourful early readers. Plenty of fun repetition.
