Review: Scratch and Patch Series

Scratch and Patch is a new series of beginner books aimed at getting young boys excited about reading. They are specifically designed to appeal to younger boys, to help them embrace reading from an early age.

The two main characters are lovable and mischievous monsters who have grown up together.
The books are full of bright colours and each title is set at a different reading level so that the reader can progress and learn with each title.

On the inside of each cover, you will find information for teachers and parents explaining how many running words, high frequency words and interest words are in each book, as well as grammar marks and reading tips. Wonderful!

If you are in need of some reading materials for young boys and want to help them engage with reading, do consider this series.
