Lovely, lovely collection! -

Fab stories and super illustrations. These are now firm favourites at bedtime. Excellent value.

Me and my boy's favourite -

I bought them for the illustrations and also thought maybe my boy (5) can start reading something else other than stories of characters from television programmes. He seems to get warm with the collection after I started telling him how much I like the pictures. He would pick one up from the shelf and starts reading them at breakfast time and finishes them off at bedtime. The collection is a good mix for early readers with repetitive rhymes to build up their confidence to read, followed by interesting stories to keep them interested and wanting to read on!

Fab -

Excellent books worth every penny as noted below. Well done TBP. More of these sets as they are great for party bags too.

"Brilliant" -

Ed (5) loves these books, and I don't mind reading them on a nightly basis - recommend.

"A feast for eyes and ears" -

This set of books is a real bargain from the Book People. The books are fun to read aloud, and laid out in a way that children can quickly learn to read them for themselves. There are simpler books for younger children, and more complex stories for the older ones. As always, the illustrations are enchanting - lots to look at, masses of detail. Brilliant! I bought these books for my grandson (8) and for my son to use in the German school where he teaches young children to speak and read English in a cultural setting.
