Primary School Books
Free Attention Skills Checklist
Primary School books are wide and varied
Why? Because primary school books need to change as the child moves from Prep to Grade 6! During this period, the primary school books you choose for your student or child needs to reflect:
The reading levels of children. New readers to efficient readers!
- From Prep to Grade 3 children are learning how to read
- From Grade 3 children are reading to learn
A book that is too hard to read can reduce a child’s confidence and interest in books. A book that is too easy or “too baby-ish” can also deter primary school students from wanting to read.
Know your child’s reading level and choose primary school books that are at, or a tiny bit above, their level! Try not to get them to read at a level above their ability just because there are other students in the class that are at a higher level. Your child’s reading will falter rather than pushing them ahead if their reading skill is out of sync with their reading levels.
- Hint: read the harder primary school books to them rather than asking them to read it – this can be more beneficial to your child’s ability to read than pushing them to read a book that really is too “hard”.

Let's say the P sound eBook
Children's Books: Peppy The Balloon Clown "Let's say the P Sound"
Promoting Speech Development and Clarity Improving Sound Awareness for Reading Skills!
Pop, a magical character, and his friend Peppy the Balloon Character take Becky and Timmy on a exciting adventure to save the circus event! Watch with delight as the children reading the book bring the balloon characters to life with their magic chants. This book however is so much MORE than a fun children’s story: This children's book encourages CLEAR SPEECH, EARLY READING SKILLS, COMPREHENSION SKILLS AND SOCIAL CONCEPTS.
The book cleverly teaches children how to say the “p sound” and then helps them practice saying the sound with vowels (e.g., pee, par) and then in words (at the beginning, middle and end of words). Great for children that are not saying the “p” sound well (e.g., “pig” sounds like “big” or “cup” is said as “cu___”.
