My 3 year old is really starting to take an interest in reading, we've been recognising and spotting letters for a while now so I'm thinking of getting some sort of learning to read/phonics type books for him to start on if he wants. I had a quick look on amazon and was a bit confused by the various phonics schemes etc. Does anyone have a recommendation for a good starting point?

As somebody who lives very close to the town of Reading, that looks very odd!

Anyway, Jolly Phonics is popular. If I were you I'd try to find out what system is used in your child's future school and try to follow that.

Haha makes you wonder how we learn to read at all! Reading, reading, which, witch etc!

I did look at the school website but couldn't make head nor tale of what scheme they use! It says they use letters and sounds and then the North Yorkshire spelling scheme??? I didn't realise we had a special way of spelling up here!
