Win a Selection of Reading and Activity Books from Oxford University Press

Would you like to win a selection of reading and activity books tailored to the correct stage for your child?  Well at the bottom of this post you can, but first here is a little bit of info about this fantastic new range from the Oxford University Press.

Having spoken with parents of young children as part of extensive market research into home learning, OUP found that many parents were unsure which books were matched to their children’s stage of learning, and therefore struggled to identify which books to read at home. Additionally, while they wanted to support their child’s school learning at home, they wanted the process to be fun, rather than to feel like a chore tagged on to already busy lives.

To help children to make progress at home, whilst encouraging reading and learning for pleasure, OUP has created two new ranges of reading and activity books – Read with Oxford and Progress with Oxford –  and Read with Oxford Stages, a new, clear, and comprehensive six-stage levelling system to support learning progression at home.

The OxfordOwl website now hosts extensive new and free supporting materials for use at home. Not sure where to start? Try our simple test to find out which Read with Oxford Stage is best for your child, or have a look on to find out more about each stage, including tips to support your child at home, free activities, downloadable activity sheets, and suggested reading lists.

levelled reading and activity books


Read with Oxford is a new range of readers for children aged approximately 3-8. Featuring much-loved characters, great authors, engaging storylines, and fun activities, Read with Oxford offers an exciting range of carefully levelled reading books to build reading confidence.

From the first early reading steps all the way through to reading independence, the new levelling system – Read with Oxford Stages – has been designed to help parents find the perfect books to support their child’s reading journey at every stage. It enables, inspires, and empowers parents to independently identify, track, and nurture their child’s reading development.

Each of the six stages are colour-coded and underpinned by a simple statement to help you choose at a glance the right stage for your child. Read with Oxford Stages are also aligned with the Oxford Levels and Book Bands used in schools throughout the UK, so that you can match Read with Oxford books to those your child brings home from school.


Progress with Oxford is a new series of activity workbooks, created by subject experts, to develop children’s essential English and maths skills.

The activity books are fully aligned with what is taught in pre-schools and in schools, and are designed to support children to complete activities independently. Picture clues guide the youngest children, and hints and checklists help to direct older children. Fun characters, collectable stickers, and progress charts encourage children every step of the way.

The OxfordOwl website provides additional resources, advice, and activities to complement the Progress with Oxford books, offering ideas for how to support your child’s new and emerging English and math skills at home.


The winner will receive a selection of titles with a minimum value of £25 taken from the stage most suited to their child. To enter please fill in the Gleam widget below
