DD is learning to read and is about ORT level 5 stage. We are dutifully ploughing my way through the ones which are coming from school, but I was just wondering if anyone had any suggestions for books she could try which maybe weren't part of a reading scheme and actually had an enjoyable story!

There are some new ORT ones out now (not the Magic Key ones...) written by Julia Donaldson - ds's school has them and he is really enjoying them. The other ones he enjoys at home are a set of DR Seuss books.

Ask in your local library, they should have a fair bit at about ORT level 5+.

Are you thinking for her to read to you, or for her to read alone?

When dd was learning to read we enjoyed reading Teddy Robinson together, with her reading the bits that Teddy R says and me reading the rest of the story.

Usborne have some nice early reader books. Why not take your DD to the library and look through a load with her.
