What’s in the pack?
There are twenty-four Biff, Chip & Kipper books from Stage 1 included in the pack. These are perfect for a child who is starting to put together simple words using letter sounds.
There are five books with phonics activities. You play these like “I spy” - your child has to match the words with the pictures. There are twelve books that contain two stories. Each story has 8 pages, is preceded by activities, and followed by questions about the story.
Finally, there are seven books that have one story 17 pages long, followed by questions to test their understanding. Twelve books are used to practice reading with phonics, and twelve are to broaden your child’s reading.
This great value set will accompany you right through the first stage of the Read with Oxford programme. You’ll laugh, you’ll learn, and you’ll have a little fun on the way.
About the books
The first thirty book collection of the Biff, Chip & Kipper series was published by Oxford University Press in 1985. Since then, over 800 books have been published, originally as Oxford Reading Tree. It was created by writer Roderick Hunt and illustrator Alex Brychta to make learning to read fun, as well as useful, and in response to the poor quality of books at the time. The books have been translated into more than 15 languages, brought to over 130 countries, and adapted into multiple TV series, including Biff & Chip, now airing on CBeebies and BBC iPlayer.
From the publisher
