    Hello Everybody
    I am trying to source some big books for Reception and Year 1. Has anyone found a good source?
    Much appreciated.
    Warm regards

    What do you mean by Big Books?
    Do you mean those giant things we used to have for shared reading? The ones that were a nightmare to handle and turn pages, yet the font was no larger than normal, so none of the children past the first row could read it?
    I think everyone had given them up for shared books on the IWB these days.

    Madeleine Lindley always have a good selection. I have bought some from cheap bookshops- possibly The Works.
    @caterpillartobutterfly does have a point about online versions being better. However I do like them and there's nothing wrong with a mixture of big books and texts on the whiteboard.
