Reading for Me is a fun, new-style kids’ literacy series that helps them to become independent readers through engaging daily activities. The series caters to different year levels, with six books, each broken into two parts.

Introducing the series

As a parent or teacher, it’s important to help your child develop their literacy skills from an early age, but it can often be difficult to find the right resources and techniques for doing so. That’s why Reading for Me is such an innovative series.

By combining workbooks with a sense of enjoyment and confidence in reading at home, children are able to develop their literacy skills and love for reading simultaneously.

The Reading for Me series is designed to help children in Years 1 to Year 6 develop important reading comprehension skills in line with the national curriculum. The six books (for each stage of learning) are filled with fun stories and engaging activities to make reading enjoyable for pupils, and easy for teachers.

  • There are six levels in the series, suitable for Year 1 to Year 6.

How Reading for Me works

The Reading for Me series is designed to improve reading comprehension skills as pupils progress through the series.  The workbooks are tailored to different year levels and the texts correspond to the national curriculum.

Each book contains 60 texts and questions, divided into two sections. The first section focuses on developing reading skills by providing text and accompanying questions designed to help develop an understanding of what is read.

In the second section, children answer questions that relate directly to the text they have just read. This helps them identify key points in each piece of writing, which develops their comprehension skills further.

This book series helps children to become independent readers by providing texts of different types and levels of difficulty, accompanied by questions that assess understanding.


What you can expect from the Reading for Me series

This series provides a range of engaging activities that help support early literacy skills development. It is both fun and challenging for pupils as it covers a wide range of topics with texts adapted for different abilities.

By using Reading for Me regularly at home or in a classroom setting, kids will not only gain valuable literacy skills but also develop an appreciation for the power of storytelling. They will learn how to express themselves through both writing and drawing while also understanding key concepts such as organisation and communication.

Parents will appreciate being able to monitor their child’s progress through online assessments that track performance over time. With these tools in place, parents can ensure their child is developing the necessary skills needed for success later in life!

Developing confidence and enjoyment

The workbooks aim not only to teach children important reading skills but also to foster a sense of enjoyment and confidence in their ability to read independently at home. The stories included in each book bring the characters to life with vibrant illustrations and engaging plots so that children will be excited about delving into them on their own.

Fun and engaging activities

The activities found throughout the books are designed to be fun yet educational for children so that they stay engaged with their reading materials. Additionally, each activity is structured so that it builds on prior knowledge while also giving room for success as they move through the materials. This helps build a child’s confidence as they progress through the program and encourages them to continue engaging with their reading material even after completing each book in the series.


Reading for Me is an innovative way to support early literacy skills

Reading for Me workbooks offer parents and teachers a great way to help kids build their literacy skills while giving them plenty of enjoyable activities along the way! The engaging stories coupled with fun activities make it an ideal way for parents and teachers to foster a love of reading in children while introducing them to key literacy concepts.
