`What I feel this range does, is to combine reading for progress with reading for pleasure. [...] there is a brilliant mix of modern and traditional tales, well-known characters, super-heroes and non-fiction [...] there really is something for everyone.'

`[The Read with Oxford Stages] offer parents a way of pinpointing the most appropriate complimentary resources and activities to use at home as their children progress through the reading schemes.'

`These books will support a child's reading journey at home with clear progression, step by step stages and online advice and resources. The books are designed to provide this progression and support in a fun way, rather than feeling like yet another chore to add to an already overburdened list.'
