Join the Songbirds characters in these lively and engaging phonics stories!

Find out what it's like to be small with Bob Bug, read about Viv's odd pet and discover who is Paula the vet's wildest patient, along with many more colourful characters.

From the author: "Ever since I taught my sister to read by the phonic method, when I was six and she was four, I have been fascinated by words, sounds and spelling patterns. Creating the “Songbirds” series was an enormous challenge of my favourite kind. Every word in every book had to be phonically decodable, and yet I wanted to write real stories which children would enjoy reading. I was determined also that the content and illustrations should be as varied as possible, as I know how children’s tastes differ and how monotonous some reading schemes can be. So, some of the stories are in prose, some in rhyme, some are realistic and others fantastical. There are a few non-fiction titles, a play and a quiz, and the books are illustrated by a wonderful variety of artists. I think my favourite characters are Spike who says he can dive, drive and feed wild lions, and a kleptomaniac kangaroo called Sue who comes to school and steals the spoons and glue."

These 36 stories have been carefully levelled with built-in phonics progression to support the phonics skills children learn in school.

They contain a wonderful mix of rhythm, rhyme, and exciting language, for which Julia Donaldson is so renowned.

From the Oxford Reading Tree, this collection combines playful rhythm-and-rhyme tales with vibrant and interesting illustrations sure to engage little ones. Great for encouraging gradual progress and for preparing children for studies in primary school or supplementing their early learning, these bite-sized tales will promote an early positive reading experience.

With a focus on building phonics skills, this collection includes thirty-six books filled with fun stories and colourful illustrations. It is ideal for children who are gaining more reading confidence. Tips for reading together explain the letter patterns that each story focuses on and identify any words children may find tricky, helping you to get the most out of the collection.
