Review of Lexie and Friends, Phonic Book Sets
Many thanks to Ameeta (and children), for taking the time
to review the first of our Lexie and Friends Phonic Books.
They seem to be a hit with both Ameeta and her children.
and Friends - Phonic Books - SET 1 & SET 2
The boys love them and so do I. I really like how they follow
the reading band scheme at school, as I never really know
which books go in which band!
They are also nice and fun to read. Josh is really wanting
to learn about the characters and follows the stories well.
I find the books from school are either so repetitive that
they are boring or the stories don’t make sense –
often it feels like sentences are just random words put together!
So it’s nice to have books that Josh can read that make
sense, have a story etc., etc.
Josh can read both pink band books by himself, which surprised
me, as he hasn’t done that with the school books he
brings home. I don’t know whether that’s the font
or just the fact they are better written books!
I wonder whether the school books have been banded by the
teachers rather than having been written for the specific
band. It definitely feels like these books have been written
for the specific bands and it makes a big difference.
I also like how the books have a theme but the pages are
different. Often you get books that have the same sentences
on each page with just one word different. These books are
not like that and use a different mix of words throughout
the book and so increases learning.
I can’t comment on the font other than Josh seems
to find it easier to read.
Illustrations are great, Josh loves the characters.
So overall excellent books, no negative points that I can
I will take them to school at some point and show them to
Dr Ameeta Patel, Paediatric Doctor and mother of 2!

figures went down really well, they were very robust and
have had a lot of play value. Excellent value for money and
much stronger than any similar types I've used in the past."
