Books for the big day and beyond

Your child is about to take a big step into the wide world! Some children will be a little nervous (and maybe you are too). Don’t worry – their favourite characters are starting school with them.


Stories such as Topsy and Tim Start School can help you both face the feelings that come with this big leap and show you what happens on a normal school day.


Starting school is all about growing up and new challenges, so get prepared – and excited! – with our I’m Ready series. Discover a new morning routine and what to expect in the classroom.


Beyond the first day, Ladybird helps your child practise what they’re learning – whether it’s writing, maths or history. Teachers and consultants work with us, so you can trust that our books match what your child is studying. I’m Ready For... Phonics explains unfamiliar ideas, to make supporting your child simple.


Reading should be fun, too. With stories for all abilities – covering classic fairy tales, new friends like Peppa Pig and factual books on bugs, space and dinosaurs – our Read it yourself series is loved by even reluctant readers.


By helping to improve confidence and adding a touch of magic, Ladybird hopes to make discovering stories and falling in love with reading happen naturally.
