Bug Club Shared Reading: The Best Place in Space (Year 1)

Engaging stories with curriculum-linked vocabulary progression


One night, while the stars
were all quietly shining,
The planets were moaning
and whinging and whining.

The planets are all fed up with their place in space. Mercury is bored stiff of his view, Uranus is far too cold and Neptune never gets any attention. Until one night when the planets decide to leave their orbits behind and switch places. Could this solve all their problems?

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
