Please note: This collection is shrink-wrapped and does not come in a box.

Part of the Oxford Reading Tree Scheme, this big collection contains 20 fantastic stories that children will be able to enjoy reading by themselves.

Starting with the text-free The Ugly Duckling and the Elves and Shoemaker and then moving onto Chicken Licken and Right for Me - two picture books that contain minimal text so children can tell the story in their own words - the collection gradually progresses through the reading levels with the help of some traditional stories and fairy tales.

The familiar fairy tales make the books instantly appealing and young readers will absolutely love reading about Cinderella, Jack and the Beanstalk, Mulan and Beauty and the Beast independently. Certain to help inspire a love of reading, all the books in this collection feature stunning illustrations and familiar language that will capture a child's imagination.

Please note that this 21-book collection contains 20 stories and a handbook for parents.

Slipcase not included.

Big range of ages -

These are lovely books but please be aware that the range goes from a just pictures with only a few words to quite complex end of Key Stage 1 books. Not necessarily a problem but as a box set that means that there are always too basic or too difficult books with only a few at the level you want. If you have limited space on the bookshelf this may be frustrating. If a wide range is what you're after however, they are a great choice.

Fantastic value! -

I don't often write reviews but I was so impressed with these books I wanted to share it with others! Huge set of books - all really lovely quality - both the stories and the images. My little boy of 4 is still unable to read yet but he loves hearing the stories and I can see they will be a great supplement to his reading when he starts school.

Love the way they have a little retelling bit at the end of each book, as this really supports the current thinking about the importance of oral storytelling. Buy them, especially at this great price and great service from the Book People as usual.

Excellent! -

We bought these to supplement the Read with Biff, Chip and Kipper series. The progression of this series is fantastic and even our almost-3-year-old is chatting away with the picture books. Our 4-year-old is starting to read with confidence and loves the pictures. The books are a great size and the slipcase is sturdy. Would definitely recommend. LOVE these books!

I bought these for my 5-year-old and she, and her 7-year-old brother love them. They are a good quality and size and come in a sturdy box. They regularly ask me to read these as their bedtime story. Highly recommended.
