I started using the books in this Usborne series to help my 7 year old (English is her second language) learn how to read this summer before she starts 1st grade this fall. Since I'm not a teacher by training, I was a little unsure about how to start out with her, but Pirate Pat was a great starting point, and the parental aids in the front, and bonus work in the back we're really great. She's on book #3 now, and sounding out words everywhere we go. :-) As others have mentioned, one of the best ...more

I love the format for this series of books for kids learning to read! And it was an added bonus that the first book was about a pirate (my almost 4 year old sons current obsession). I love how the adult has one side of the page to read first and then the child reads the other side. My son loves having a role, but it's just the right length/difficulty that he doesn't get frustrated with it. The book is short enough that we can reread it many times and he has already learned to recognize more word ...more

This is a wonderful book for children just learning to read. Each double-page spread has two parts, the story that the grown-up can read on the left, and then a rhyming sentence that the beginning reader can read on the right. What the child reads is a perfect level for my 5 year old (such as "Sit Sam, Sit!") but the fact that most of the story is written for an adult to read allows the story to have a bit more depth.

The book then ends with puzzles for the kids, to make sure they understand the

Pirate Pat is the first book in series designed to help young children develop reading skills.

I really like the shared reading aspect. Parents read a part, and the child reads a part. It's extremely motivating for the child :).

I actually made a video of my son and I reading this book, it'll be up on my facebook page soon.

Grades K-1. Part of the Usborne Very First Reading series. I LOVE this series. I've been wishing for something similar to the We Both Read series-- and it's finally arrived. This is a great way to encourage reluctant readers to read to (with) an adult.

Great beginning reader for my son. I appreciated the activities in the back to further his engagement with the book. I look forward to reading the others in the Usborne series. My beginning reader loves the assigned parts so he isn't reading an entire book by himself.

Love these books as they are a part of the Usborne Very First Reading series. They are great stories and include activities for comprehension, rhyming, word choice, etc at the end of each. Our son loved the whole series!
