Playing by the book

Reviews of kids' books and the crazy, fun stuff they inspire us to do

Win an entire set of Ladybird Read it Yourself books! That’s 50 books, worth over £200!

**THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED. It was won by no. 238, Rebecca Townsend**

With the Summer Holidays almost in sight I’ve started thinking about what role books will play in our summer fun. Every July I look out for great activity books (here are some we’ve enjoyed in the past), but with a young child who’s just getting the hang of reading for herself and is keen to read more, I’m also looking for an exceptional read-it-yourself series.

I’m not crazy about spending the summer doing “homework”, but I know it’s reassuring and helpful to have a set of graded readers to hand, and so I’ve been looking at the new Ladybird Read It Yourself set.

readityourself

This set is comprised of 50 graded books, a mixture of classic fairytale retellings, old favourites such as Topsy and Tim, and a sprinkling of TV characters such as Peppa Pig and Harry and his Bucket full of Dinosaurs. This seems like a good mix to me – old and new, classic and modern.

The 50 books are distributed over 4 broad levels, with Level 1 described as “for children who are ready to take their first steps in reading,” whilst Level 4 consists of “longer stories for more independent, fluent readers.”

I’m not sure that they’ve got the descriptions quite right; if you take a look at the sample pages below I’d say that Level 1 isn’t absolute entry level but probably what many kids could do by the 2nd half of year 1 at a UK school (in my experience).

Level 1 - Goldilocks and the three bears

Level 1 – Goldilocks and the three bears

 Level 2 - The Gingerbread Man

Level 2 – The Gingerbread Man

Level 4 - The Wizard of Oz

Level 4 – The Wizard of Oz

But it’s simple to check the right level for your kids – there’s more information available about the banding and helping your child learn to read at http://www.ladybird.com/readityourself/.

It’s hugely important to me that my girls associate reading with pleasure, enjoyment and fun, and not just practise for school. To this end here are some ideas for play alongside Series 1 of these lovely Ladybird Read it Yourself books:

  • CinderellaMake a pipe cleaner tiara for Cinderella to wear at the ball.
  • Fairy FriendsMake a simple fairy house, using this tutorial from Nurture Store.
  • Goldilocks and the Three BearsCreate a simple Goldilocks playset out of a paper bag.
  • Little Red Hen – Bake some bread using a ready mix which just needs water. Maybe you could shape the dough into different animals like this!
  • Peppa Pig: Little Creatures – Go on a bug hunt down your street/in your garden. Alternatively, try these bug party ideas.
  • Peppa Pig: Recycling Fun – Try junk modelling – here‘s how we do it.
  • Rex the Big DinosaurHere are 10 dino activities from Happy Whimsical Hearts.
  • The Emperor’s New Clothes – Make a paper chain of emperors and design lots of different clothes for him to wear. Aunt Annie has some tips here.
  • The Enormous Turnip – Carve a turnip! Although it’s now more common to carve pumpkins at Halloween, Turnips used to be popular
  • The Magic Porridge PotUse this recipe (more commonly known as elephant toothpaste!) to create an overflowing pot.
  • >The Princess and the Pea – Make a princess and the pea play using this tutorial from Small World Land.
  • The Tale of Peter Rabbit – Sow some radishes with the kids. These grow very fast (about 6 weeks to harvest) and can be sown in a tray on the windowsill.
  • The Three Billy Goats GruffMake a set of goats out of toilet rolls.
  • The Ugly Duckling – Find some ducks, geese and swans to feed! A simple childhood activity which is always so satisfying.
  • Tinga Tinga Tales: Why Giraffe Has a Long NeckCreate a giraffe handprint, using this idea from Activity Village.
  • Topsy and Tim Go to the ZooMake play doh cages for your plastic animals, using this idea from Timeless Adventures.

  • If screens are what get your kids excited, the entire set of Read It Yourself books are also available as eBooks, and from the 18th of July you’ll be able to access them via a special app.

    Now to the really exciting news!

    I have one complete set of Ladybird Read it Yourself books to give away to a lucky reader. That’s FIFTY books, worth a total of more than £200!

    They’d be great for a family with young siblings at different reading levels, or brilliant in a school classroom (though teachers might want to look at Promethean Planet, which offers all the Read it yourself fairytales as fully customisable, ready-made lessons which can be downloaded for instant use.)

  • To enter, simply leave a comment on this blog post.

      Hi what a wonderful idea for the summer. Can I also mention all the wonderful libraries do the Summer Reading Scheme – this year it’s Creepy House with wonderful illustrations from Chris Riddell and very smelly stickers. All the children have to do is read 6 library books over the summer holidays. Most libraries are starting their challenge on the 13th July. So ladybird books and library books – summer sorted!

      As a child I had a lot of the old Ladybird books – they were handed down to me from my mum and her brothers. They were all hard-backed and I loved them all – I still remember some of the illustrations and from those illustrations I can remember the stories. I have a 4 year old son now, who starts school in September, he loves it when I read him a story and finds it fascinating when I tell him my mummy read this story to me such as the 3 little pigs. I’m not sure what happened to my collection of Ladybird books I miss them, and wish to share them with my son so that he can enjoy them as much as I did as a child.

      My son is now grown up and at university, he learnt to read on the Ladybird scheme and it was an effortless and really enjoyable exercise for us both. I now have a nephew who is being home educated until a school place becomes available and would love to win these to send to him to carry on the family tradition.

      What a great prize. I would love to win them for my granddaughter, Sitting together with her cuddling up to me reading is such an amazing feeling, and winning these books would give the perfect excuse for even more, even though no excuse is needed.

      I read a lot of these with my parents when I was younger, and would love to be able to do the same with my little ones, and they are timeless classics.

      This looks absolutely fantastic. My mum taught me to read with Ladybird books & I would love to do the same & read them with my kids. I have children of several different ages so this would be absolutely ideal & fabulous to read with them – especially over the Summer holidays while they might be struggling to find things to do. We would never be short of a bedtime story either with such a huge pack!
