Customer Review

"The children are really excited about Phonics Bug. You just know they're going to be with you every step of the way. It is great to see some of the boys, especially the reluctant readers, actually want to be the first to choose a book to read."

Sue Feneiron, Year 1 Teacher, Brookfield Infant School, Kent, UK

"They are so used to TV, DVDs and everything else, that getting them interested in reading is really hard. But Bug Club had children laughing, engaged and begging for more!"

Wendy Jenkins, Literacy Coordinator, Bangor Central Integrated Primary School, Northern Ireland
