As a parent of a four-year-old, I am incredibly impressed by your Rocket Phonics readers. When my son started to show an interest in reading and lockdown took place, I thought I’d better invest in a library of decodable readers. Two months in, he’s read over 60 books. Our favourite, by far, are the Rocket Phonics readers. They’re so much better than the Collins Big Cats, the Floppy’s Phonics, Songbirds, etc. and he really enjoys answering the questions at the end. I can honestly say that we’ve not found a single one to be boring, and that’s been crucial in giving him such an enthusiastic attitude to reading.
