Bug Club Shared Reading: The Perfect Pet Problem (Reception)

Engaging stories with curriculum-linked vocabulary progression


‘It’s your birthday, oh hooray! And you can pick a pet today!’ 

When Flora blows out the candles on her birthday cake, there’s nothing she wants more than her own pet. With the help of Uncle Midge’s magic bangle, her wish might just be about to come true. From a rabbiphant to a gorilligator, an eaglion to an octoquokkapus, Flora can create any pet she can imagine! But will she ever find her perfect pet? 

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
