Sounds Fun (30-50 Months) by Clare Beswick, Su Wall, Sally Featherstone


Sounds Fun (30-50 Months) by Clare Beswick, Su Wall, Sally Featherstone

The DSCF are pushing for the Letter and Sounds initiative to cover the whole 0-5 age range and this series answers that remit! These four books are differentiated to meet the particular developmental stages of the framework and clearly linked to the developmental statements, so they can be used in all sorts of schools and settings. They offer appropriate activities in four age bands, closely matched to the EYFS, and giving children a thorough grounding in the essential skills they need to become good readers.


'...a super series...that will empower even the least confident and inexperienced practitioners to become enthused and capable of supporting the youngest of children in developing key early emergent communication skills.'
Early Years Educator (August 2010)

The books for review are always great reads, brilliantly written, and introduces me to a huge variety of, established and new, authors.

Lesley Hart

I read new, exciting writers and established authors before publication and there is a great website full of brilliant books and opinions.


It has enriched my leisure time by introducing me to a world of books which I would not have previously considered.

It gives a chance to read about new titles, invites comments from all kinds of readers and is run by such a nice bunch of book lovers.
