Hi,

Bit out of touch with english books.

I am sure someone with young boys will know, are the Horrid Henri books good.
I am looking for english books for my 5 year old. Also if you know of any other books you could recommend.

Are the bookpeople good just had a look on their site, they seem really cheap.
thanks

Yes Sue,

Correct on both counts. The Horrid Henry books are very popular, and the book people are excellent value for money. Do they ship to you?

Also, they have a different site where they sell through there leftovers. bananas.co.uk (or .com can't remember)and thats VERY cheap. Alot of junk on there, but also some very god stuff.

XXXXX

As a mum to a "just turned" 7 year old boy, I know how difficult it can be to get them interested in reading. I have found that my son likes Horrid Henry, especially if I'm reading with him, and that they do some of these books particularly for early readers. Another series of books which my son enjoys are called "I am reading". There are lots of titles and many of them come with a CD of the story as well. The print is large and clear, easy to follow with a finger.
The publisher is Kingfisher. Hope you find enjoyable books for your son!

Thanks Heather,

I also saw 'Yuck' ( i think) they said if you like horrid henri then these are just as good. Little boy is five and girl is seven. also got on my list
worst witch, set of Roald Dahl, so might add horrid henri as you & james have recommended them.

I rather go into a book shop than buy over the net. Will have to get my sister to bring them as the book people don't send to france.
thanks for the help.

Hi Sue - here are some links that might guide you.

What I miss most about being retired from teaching is all the wonderful children's books I had access to. Some of these web sites will give you sideways links to others. There's some wonderful material out there! Enjoy!

Not having children or grandchildren I cannot recommend any books - but I can recommend The Book People who have wide chooice and very well priced - go their website. Also Bananas Books have some amazing bargains (part of The BP apparently). A great many of my cookbooks come from both these sites.

Thanks Had a look at those links, lots of lovely books.
Jam Jar, have now booked through Book people, just hoping my sister will remember to bring them over. They are really good value, check around some other places and no one did the same books anywhere near the prices of bookpeople.
thnaks for the advice

More info for Sue G

It just occurred to me, Sue, that when you have time you might find this site useful.
http://www.nationalstrategies.standards.dcsf.gov.uk/primary/primaryframework/literacyframework
It's what many schools use for their planning - you'll see when you click around it. Year 1 is the 5-6 yr olds, Y2 is 6-7 yr olds etc. At least you'll know what they'd be learning if they were at school in the UK - - - though quite likely totally different in France. Hope everything goes well & we look forward to updates! x x
