Collins Big Cat Reading Lions Books

When it comes to reading, Beastie has really started to find his rhythm, so when we were offered some books tailored to his ability for learning, we were happy to try out some books for his stage in reading.

Collins Big Cat is an established series of levelled reading books, widely used in UK schools. Now for the first time, Collins Big Cat is available for parents to buy themselves to support their child’s reading development. The reading packs are designed to support children when reading at home and to encourage progression as well as a love for reading.

The website has a great resource for parents to use, so that they can gauge what to expect from their child at each particular stage. Information can be found at

Beastie will be starting Year 2 in September and is pretty much independent with his reading now. So we needed a set that was going to be aimed at the right level for him, where I can simply offer support to him when he comes across words that are more tricky for him.

We were asked to review the Level 3 Supported Reading at Home set and Atlas. You can see what my little reviewer has to say here in the video…

Nb. We were sent a reading set and atlas for the purpose of this video review. All views and opinions are entirely our own.
