What we're reading in January 2015

In avoiding fiction books for our children, we struggled when it came to phonics books, early readers, and simple chapter books. However, Allah opens every door for the believer in good, and we found these over the summer, maashaa Allah.

This Floppy Phonics Fact Collection is both interesting and educational. There is a parents book along with the set and each book has two parts, including projects and fun activities.Floppy Phonics Fact Collection - 13 Books - Collection - 9780198332503

Wonderwise Collection - 20 Books - Collection - 9780749682637

In addition, we bought the Wonderwise Collection of 20 books, another non-fiction set that is geared for 5+ years, but maashaa Allah, our 2 year-old carries the books around from both sets and looks through them himself, identifying things and commenting when he isn't being read to.

We have recently found that Oxford Reading Tree does a Treetops Non-Fiction series of graded readers for higher levels up to stage 15 or above, which will inshaa Allah, give us a much wider range of books for advanced reading.

Once children are well established readers, there are many lovely books to be found that are non-fiction or based on true stories. One set we are looking at is this:

True Animal Stories Collection - 3 Books - Collection - 9780748136292 - Various

Hopefully, this will help others who want to raise avid readers with entertaining books that are the truth!
