With Floppy's Phonics, a fun series from Oxford Reading Tree, learning to read becomes a hugely enjoyable experience. Using the nationally recognised phonics method, the simple stories encourage word recognition skills and language comprehension, but equally importantly they also feature characters and scenarios that young children will want to read about. Biff, Chip, Kipper, Floppy and the rest of the gang are determined to have fun - but sometimes this results in bouts of seasickness, chickens who get in a flap or water-filled welly boots!

TITLES IN THIS SET:
# Shops
# Such a Fuss
# Cat in a Bag
# I am Kipper
# The Moon Jet
# Wet Feet
# Seasick
# Egg Fried Rice

That's good. I got four for a fiver in The Works over the summer but 8 is really good going

These are the best in the series

No more books on Biff, Chip, Kipper, Floppy please!!!

After 2 years of listening to my daugher read these stories every night I need a break! That is until my next daugher starts school next year, and I have to go through it all again! :-)

Seriously, they are good books, and are used in alot of schools.

Only thing I would say is don;t use these books if you know the school will use them, use others instead. I know my daughters school say they like to get the children to read this books completely fresh, so if they have read them at home before, it won't be as good.

Why on earth would they say that?

So that they know that the child has read the book as opposed to memorized it.

Thanks OP, have repped you. Just ordered these for my daughter. Don't forget quidco - 5% cashback.

Thanks - yes that was the point I was trying to make, but obviously didn't make it very well! :roll:

Cheers, better than the Peter & Jane books I had at school.
(I saw a Peter & Jane Book in WHSmiths the other day!!)

As a teacher it's quite easy to tell if a child has memorised a book or not. I tend to randomly point to words and see if they know them, sometimes you can see a child read the sentence in their head before they tell you that particular word. If you ask a child questions related to the book you find that they can have a little difficulty if they've memorised it because it doesn't always mean they've understood it. I also see how many times we can find a particular word.
I don't see a problem with a child having read a book before. Children develop more of an understanding the older they are and will notice things they haven't noticed before. Also a book may have been read a year ago with a focus on reading sentences and then read again recently, but this time looking at reading with expression. I've read my favourite books more than once.

(I voted hot by the way :))

my daughter is starting school in a couple of weeks, would you recommend these for her?

"my daughter is starting school in a couple of weeks, would you recommend these for her?"

I have a set of these at home for my little girl. They cover various levels. The stories are ones that boys and girls would like. They are nice books because the characters appear throughout the books so the children get to recognise them. The illustrations are nice and reflect the text on each page so a child would see there's a word beginning with h, look at the picture and see there's a hat.
Each book has tips for talking and reading together and a little activity at the end of the book. There are also four questions at the end of each story to discuss with your child.

The Oxford Reading Tree levels are explained on the back of the book. Level one is for children who "can recognise their own name, can match some words, can recognise some letter sounds". Even if a child can't read yet, the pictures are nice and you can easily talk about them. At level one a lot of the words are cvc words (consonant-vowel-consonant) which is easier for them to sound out, e.g. hat. I would recommend them.
