"These were the books that taught me how to read". (Anthony Horowitz). The much-loved classic series of Ant and Bee books is designed for shared reading fun! A tiny treasury featuring the inseparable insects, Ant and Bee. Join them on three alphabetical adventures as they travel to the hottest place in the world, discover a sparkling jewel and take a flight on a magical tree. This collection introduces three-letter, four-letter and five-letter words, and includes Ant and Bee, More Ant and Bee and More and More Ant and Bee. First published in 1950, Ant and Bee were in print for over 40 years. These new editions feature revised text and illustrations by original Ant and Bee creator Angela Banner. The adorably small format is perfect for little hands. Ant and Bee teach children to read via word recognition and encourage story sharing with siblings and parents. Grown-ups read the black words, but the shorter, simpler red words are for young children to call out. These books are for sharing, building confidence in early readers and most of all enjoying! Perfect for young children aged 3 and up.
