Last time I told you about my dad reading me Tolkien bedtime stories but this time I want to talk about my earliest remembered reads! In my first ever year at school in primary one, aged five, while others played in the sandpit or with the water, I liked going into the reading corner and looking at the books. I can well remember sitting on those hard, small red plastic chairs and reading! My parents had taught me reading basics at home before I started school so I was pretty keen to expand on that at every opportunity!
The official books to teach us to read were Kathy and Mark Basic Readers by Mabel O'Donnell. I think the dog in it was called Socks but it's so long ago I can barely remember it but I did enjoy reading them! My parents were read Janet and John books with Spot the dog!
My favourite book in the school library which I read countless times is still a childrens classic. So who else read The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle?
That brings back memories! My parents then bought me some Ladybird Well Loved Tales. I had quite a collection of these and read them over and over! Do you remember any of these titles?
