Easyreadsystem.co.uk. Quite expensive but my daughter has gone from reluctant to confident reader in 2 months.

Try www.oxfordowl.co.uk. It has a selection of the ORT books as ebooks for different ages and also has a couple of activites relating to the book.

Don't pay to join any sites, there are so many great free internet resources. Have you seen www.starfall.com ? Did your teacher not give you a list of recommended sites?

Sparkles18 - thanks, Oxford Owl is great!!! DS loves Floppy and Kipper books. He does a different reading scheme at school but when I asked him what he wanted to read this summer he said Kipper and Floppy. They don't have them at his level at the library anymore and I have already bought 3 of them this holiday and at £5.50 per book they are not cheap. Now we can read some on-line - great, many thanks!

If he does like Kipper books make sure you read the phonics ones!
www.thebookpeople.co.uk/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/qs_product_tbp?storeId=10001&catalogId=10051&langId=100&productId=223374
is good value

spanieleyes - yes, that's a great price, but these were the ones they had at the library and now I was stuck because DS wanted more Floppy!
