Enthralling, phonetically decodable readers from BookLife Publishing

  • Enthralling, phonetically decodable readers from BookLife Publishing

From its very infancy, BookLife’s first and foremost goal has been to publish innovative, original and appealing books for children.

Its decision to begin publishing originated from the belief that the current marketplace was lacking in inspired and engaging educational content.

For the past five years, BookLife has been focused on creating and publishing exciting fiction and non-fiction that will engage children of all ages and abilities.

“Their range ticks all of the boxes for features we look for in quality non-fiction, covering a huge age range and a truly diverse set of topics to suit all tastes and curiosities.”

More recently, it has published a unique, phonetically decodable reading scheme which has been carefully written to adhere to the Department for Education’s (DfE) Letters and Sounds Programme, called BookLife Readers.

Each title is fully decodable and is perfectly aligned to Phases 2–6. This exciting scheme starts at the very basics of phonetic learning and gradually develops the reader’s ability to create fluent and confident readers.

In addition to being matched to Letters and Sounds, each title has a book band level between Lilac and Lime. The exciting stories are brought to life with stunning, colourful illustrations and feature diverse characters that children will love.
