Ladybird Readers Beginner Level - Tom's Birthday (ELT Graded Reader)



Ladybird Readers is a graded reading series for English Language Teaching (ELT) markets, designed for children learning English as a foreign or second language.

Recommended for children aged 3-11, the eight levels of Ladybird Readers follow the CEFR framework (Pre-A1 to A2+) and include language activities that help develop key skills and provide preparation for the Cambridge English tests.

The Beginner level helps children to learn and practice their first words in English. It introduces everyday phrases, such as 'hello' and 'thank you', and focuses on vocabulary that young children can use in daily life. Simple text and repetition support understanding, and speaking and listening activities develop confidence.

It is Tom's birthday. Where is Tom's house?
