WHICH PREP READING BOOK SHOULD I GET? Fiona asks “I’d appreciate it if you could please ask all the mums out there with Prep kids what books are used to help children to learn to read. My nearly 4yo is doing the Reading Eggs program and can read quite well, but she knows all of our books at home off by heart. I’d like to get her some early readers with big writing and simple words, but wouldn’t have a clue what to get. Thanks, Fiona.”

  • yes i would go n pay the library a visit

  • Join your local library, millions of books and think of all the trees you’re saving. Most libraries have storytime sessions for kids as well, mine all went to these and they loved them. Best thing is it doesn’t cost you anything.

  • You can get preschool learning books from Aldi every now and again, we got some a couple of months ago and our daughter loves them. Great to learn to read and write and do activities like connect the dots, 1+1, colour in the numbers with different colours, tracing letters to make words etc.

  • The books that start at level one and are also referred to as first readers. They will start on these level one books when they start prep.

  • Contact the school she will be attending and they will tell you what to get and where from
