Learning To Read

Learning to read begins as early as when a baby learns to talk. Sharing books with your child; talking about the pictures and reading the words, lays the foundation for pre-reading skills such as page turning and memorising the sounds. It is important to remember that children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates, and there is no substitute for the enthusiasm of a parent or teacher to spark a love of reading in a child.

Most of us will remember learning to read by matching pictures to words and eventually moving onto simple books. Understanding the way children are taught to read today can feel quite daunting, synthetic phonics is the method now used in all UK schools - click here to read more about phonics. In addition to our comprehensive phonics range, Ladybird also publishes the Key Words and Read it Yourself schemes.
