    Horrid Henry, BeastQuest, The Clumsies...all books my Year 3s read and are reasonably simple, but not too childish.

    I know you said not scheme but Rapid Readers


  3. My own son used the Rapid reading scheme and his reading improved tremendously in a very short space of time
  4. Did you use the full package with the software or just the books?

    I would third/fourth rapid Readers, they are quite boy orientated and fab for struggling readers as the pictures are appropriate for older readers

    You're a bad man Mr Gum and other Mr Gum books, Barrington Stoke books 4u2 read (I know you said not a scheme, but they are not scheme books as such and they are fantastic readers). Astrosaurs. I would maybe push them with Jiggy McCue books as although they would be a bit more stretching, they are fantastically funny boy books.

    Thanks for the suggestions.
    The reason I said 'no schemes' is because it is mainly suggestions for the parents to get out from the library/buy themselves. Can rapid readers be bought individually?

    I bought lots of individual Rapid books from Amazon
