Bug Club Shared Reading: The Pet Portrait Painter (Year 1)

Engaging stories with curriculum-linked vocabulary progression


Penelope Pip can paint your pet in any colour, size and style you can think of - no animal is too difficult. As the day goes on she realises that the owners seem to look just like their pets - how silly! But a surprise might just be in store when Penelope Pip returns home …

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
