Hi

DS2 is just finishing reception and has just gone up to green book band. He is trying to do the summer reading challenge. Which books would be good for his level so I can get some for our holiday?

Thanks in advance flowers

Are you in England? How much basic phonics he knows may be an issue. If he is used and ok with "real books" Usbourne first reading level 1 is a mix of green and orange. He may be ok with harder stuff though as some schools home readers are pitched easy for confidence or comprehension ability (ours are - my supposedly blue band son has just devoured a supposedly turquoise band book. Interest level is probably more crucial.

Yes, I'm in England. I will look at Usbourne, thanks.
