Which book is right for my child? Levelling explained

The Read with Biff, Chip and Kipper series is a carefully levelled series designed to introduce children to fundamental early reading skills and to encourage a love of stories.

The series is split into two strands (Phonics and First Stories) and there are six graded levels in each strand. Providing gradual progression and vocabulary repetition, each level reflects a different age range:

  • Levels 1-3: age 4-5
  • Levels 3-6: age 5-6

In addition, there are a variety of kits, activity books and flashcards designed to help you develop your child’s reading skills in a fun and engaging way.
