Oxford Reading Tree: Level 5: Stories: The Magic Key
First steps towards reading. Please try to find a quiet ten minutes every day to look at a book with your child.

Gradually, he or she will make the connection between the story you read aloud and the printed word. Children often have favourite stories they want to hear again and again.
