*Ad-gifted: We received the Stage 2 Biff, Chip and Kipper reading books in exchange for this post.
This past week, we’ve been filling out lots of school paperwork for L for September, she’s pretty good at writing her name, counting, and knowing her ABC’s. Mr B and I were surprised she was reciting it back to us the other day while signing it in Makaton. She hasn’t forgotten it from preschool these past few months! Our local primary is a sweet village school and I’m so glad we got a place there. It’s scary to think my beautiful rainbow baby is now getting ready for school. It only seemed a short while ago she was born on Superbowl day over 4 years ago while a storm was howling away outside. She is very ready for school though and is surprising us every day with words she is reading from signs, food packets, and on the TV. So I thought this stage 2 reading book set with Biff, Chip and Kipper would be the ideal start for learning to read at 4 years old.

These characters are from Oxford Reading Tree and these beloved and friendly bunch were created all the way back in 1986 by author Roderick Hunt and the wonderful illustrator Alex Brychta who created the beautiful artwork to support the story and context.
We have been reading 2 books a day together and are thoroughly enjoying them. L is surprising me all the time picking out the words she knows and following along. Biff, Chip and Kipper are great stories that are timeless. I remember reading them at school! And it’s amazing to share these adventures with L. All 16 books come in a pouch to keep them safe.
