    High-frequency sight words such as 'the', 'and', 'is' and 'it' are among the key words that help very young children learn to read.

    Very important for helping children build their literacy skills, the words are key in increasing a child's accuracy, speed, comprehension and fluency. This workbook provides fun exercises and activities that will help preschool children write and recognise the most common of these words.

    With wipe-clean pages (pen also included), the exercises can be completed and repeated again and again so that young children can familiarise and understand the functions of these words.

    The book contains perforated pages that can be made into flash cards for further learning.

    The Book With No Pictures shows young readers that not every book has to have pictures to be fun. It will delight children as they share the reading with their parents and they'll love how Mum and Dad end up making extremely silly noises and saying some wonderfully weird things.

    Written by American writer, actor, comedian and director B.J. Novak (best known as Ryan from the American version of the Office - you know, the one who started the fire...), this is a book that is both disarmingly simple and impressively imaginative at the same time.

    With the simple mantra 'Everything the words say, the person reading the book has to say', parents should be warned that this a hilariously tongue-twisting way for children aged 3 and over to learn just how much fun they can have with the written word.
