The story of Big Pig's hunt for treasure is very amusing and takes into account recent research on the most effective ways to teach reading. This title, part of the Easy Words to Read series, features phonics-based text and a story which has been specially written to help children learn to read. Created in consultation with a language expert, the extra appeal of fold-out pages and wonderful Stephen Cartwright illustrations will delight both children and adults. There is also a page of helpful notes for parents. ("Ideal for sharing with a toddler, but its repetitive language also makes it excellent for beginner readers."
