Sale price$39.00


Decodable nonfiction to inspire your curious little learners.

These engaging nonfiction books are decodable meaning children use their  knowledge of letters and sounds to decode (sound-out) the text. Little Learners BIG WORLD nonfiction follow the same phonics sequence as our decodable fiction (Pip and Tim), providing extra reading practice ... and so much more!

In this series we cover a range of relevant topics and text types – packing in as many facts as possible. Children will build content knowledge and vocabulary – vital for the development of comprehension. Every book includes a Talk About It section designed to spark discussion and develop oral language skills.

Beautifully designed with a hybrid photographic and illustrative visual approach – these books will engage children and enable them to experience success.
