Big books for early years and primary school are a vital teaching tool that are key for many aspects of learning. Teachers have long been utilising big books for classrooms to introduce young learners to the reading experience. In turn, increasing their confidence for future independent reading.
To ensure educators have access to the resources they need, Madeleine Lindley stocks a wide range of big books for shared reading. They look at different writing forms and genres, touching on many topics across the curriculum, including science, creative arts, nursery rhymes, geography and more. From old favourites such as The Gruffalo and The Very Hungry Caterpillar, to colourful traditional tales like Goldilocks and the Three Bears - children won’t be able to look away! Another reason teachers have long been utilising big books for classrooms is their effectiveness in introducing young learners to the reading experience. In turn, increasing their confidence for future independent reading.
