Fun stories of under 50 words for emergent readers

Sid's Red Car is a fun story for young animal fans who are beginning to read on their own. Perfect for children aged 4+ who are reading at book band red.

Every time that Sid drives off in his car, he hears squeaks. Whatever can be causing all the noise? Perhaps Mummy Cat has an idea!

The Tiddlers series features fun stories with a word count of fewer than 50 words for children who are just starting to read. A word list at the beginning of the story allows for a quick check of the reader's ability to read and understand words before reading, and a puzzle at the end of the story encourages rereading for pleasure. Compiled in consultation with Catherine Glavina, PGCE Primary and Early Years Course Leader, The Centre for Professional Education, University of Warwick.
