Bug Club Shared Reading: A Home for Henrietta (Year 1)

Engaging stories with curriculum-linked vocabulary progression


One day, crawling under stones in the garden, Callum spies Henrietta the woodlouse. Callum is determined to find her a home, and stop her from getting squashed. With the help of his sister, they try all sorts of different homes for Henrietta. But no matter what they try, nothing seems to be right. Will they ever find the perfect home for Henrietta?

Bug Club Shared Reading titles are highly engaging and beautifully illustrated stories, designed to be read out loud. The programme exposes children to rich, curriculum-linked vocabulary, helping to build an understanding across school subjects and cultivate a love for reading. 

‘These books are a great start to addressing the wider curriculum and the vocabulary issues that schools are identifying.’ - Assistant Head, Primary Academy
