Dandelion readers are simple to use and provide children with books that are structured, have engaging stories and are brightly illustrated. Children can confidently start reading when they know 5 sounds - ‘a i m s t’ and can blend them together to make words.

The first pack is available in three parallel sets of ten books. This means that children have 3 books at the same level allowing them to practise with confidence.
