Beginner reading Books for 6 year Olds

Our books for 6 year olds offer something of interest to so many – but importantly are suitable for teaching children to read and become independent readers.

This is important work that children learn in school that parents have to guide children through at home as they master words and become confident readers. (Here’s some great tips for reading with your 6 year old to build their reading confidence.)
