    I would be interested in blogs on phonics and reading ages.
    My 3 year old can already read and my 7 year old I think reads about 3 years beyond her age. I’d like ideas of what in the Ladybird range would be suitable for them and also maybe Ladybird tackling updating the reading age test, as it is now so severely out of date. I get so fed up contacting publishers about what might be suitable for my children age-wise and to be told consistantly that “reading age” is unimportant and that children develop at different speeds. I know that, but I like to know which content is suitable.
    Also, we’d love to review books for you, but looks like you have lots of volunteers already!!

    It amazing to see books that were my all-time favourites are still such a big influence in my daughters generation. They really do inject a sense of innocence and familiarity bcd into our adult lives…thank you Ladybird for your continual succession of great reading that my 15 month old daughter loves so much!

    Great books, my son is only 2 but he loves reading books with me. We have a lot of the baby and toddler books and looking forward to helping him learn to read with some of the older ranges. It would be nice to have some childrens reviews of the books on your blogs, perhaps some recordings of younger children talking about the books too?!

    What a wonderful prize to kick start the New Year!!
    Five Little Ducks (the rhyme) is already a firm favourite in our household as this is something we learnt at Baby Signing and something we sing on a regular basis in the car!
    Ladybird books are fantastic for children, engaging, colourful and beautiful stories!!

  9. Loved Ladybird Books as a child; loved reading them with my children; shared them with many children when working as school librarian. Now reviewing books for http://www.parentsintouch.co.uk to bring them to as wide an audience as possible. Would love more to review and will review these if I win. Thank you!

  11. Catherine Miller says:

    I would love to see recommendations for different levels of development and tips for parents encouraging their kids to read 🙂

    We have ‘whose bottom?’ lol Alex loves it. I used to love Ladybird books when I was younger – so much so that when our school had fancy dress of book characters for book week, I dressed up as ‘the ladybird from the ladybird books’ hahaha – everyone else was a Disney princess and I had a bit of cardboard and red & black crepe paper on my back and black tights on my arms and legs. I won a book token though x

    I have always loved Ladybird books…I had them when I was a child and now my children have them…
    Maybe interesting to have some comments and info from some of the childrens authors and also some quotes and comments from the children themselves…many thanks indeed

    I’d love to see some reviews by guest bloggers. And perhaps a blog about phonics and reading ages – it can e hard to find books at the right level for my 5 year old who is beginning to read, and loves reading to his 5 month old sister.

  15. Leanne McLoughlin says:

    Meant to also say – it would be great to get some more ‘cot books’ for babies and touch/feel books x

    we find the ‘old but goodie’ ladybird read it yourself books a great hit. My 3 year old can already read quite a few of them.

  17. Masiel Otero says:

    I would love to have bilingual books. I was born and bred in England but now live in Spain. I speak to my girls in English and read them english books but it would be great to have something specific for bilingual children.

  18. Thank you to everyone who has left a comment – they are great to read and we are delighted that you are enjoying the blog. We have lots planned for our blog for 2011 and hope to cover all you’ve requested! The winner of the prize draw has been contacted this morning but thanks again to everyone who entered.
