    Covering Collins Big Cat Reading Levels 1 and 2, the books in this collection have been designed to help support children's reading development at home.

    Phonics is a proven system that helps children learn to read and write by teaching them letter sounds (known as phonemes) rather than letter names and here they're featured in funny stories. You should encourage children to read the stories and encourage them to sound out any words they struggle with. Among the stories are Hansel and Gretel, Panda's Band and Mole in the Hole.

    These books come with notes for parents that will help you offer support as your children learn to read at school.
