Decodable books apps

The Pip and Tim and The Wiz Kids decodable books are now available as apps at iTunes and Google Play.

We call our Little Learners books the 'no tricks' books. Once children know 8 letters and sounds, they can start reading about Pip and Tim, their family, friends and pets through the Pip and Tim series. The series aligns with our carefully sequenced phonic stages, with 5 books for each stage to give lots of reading practice. 

They can also go one more adventures with The Wiz Kids books (Stages 1-4).

The stories and characters are engaging and the illustrations are colourful and fun. 


The Pip and Tim phonic books are now available as apps with professional audio to engage children. There are two different modes:

Stages 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 on iTunes have been created with three different audio modes - Read to me, I will read, No audio.

Stages Plus 4, 6, 7.1, 7.2, 7.3, 7.4 and 7.5  on iTunes have a different mode which enables children to record and hear themselves read. It takes it to the next level, inspiring our readers to reread to improve accuracy and fluency.





These apps are part of the Apple Education Volume Purchase plan - schools can purchase 20 apps with a 50% discount. 

Please note: you have a choice of purchasing as either ‘Device Assignable’ OR ‘User Assignable’. The latter is preferable when schools need to ‘share’ apps with parents for home use as it allows the IT department to assign a licence. The app can be revoked by the IT department once the person no longer needs the app and assigned to another email address.
