The much-loved children’s series that makes learning to read fun.

With stories for all abilities – covering classic fairy tales, all the kids’ favourite characters, and facts on things like bugs, space and dinosaurs – the Read It Yourself series is loved by even the most reluctant readers. Simple sentences and frequently repeated words help to build confidence. And the ever-present Ladybird magic encourages children to discover stories and fall in love with reading.
