20 years! Oh my gosh! It is exciting to have helped thousands of children in that time & to still be continuing to do so.

The Frog Reading Books are a Full Literacy Programme for beginners and it can be used by Teachers, Teacher Aides or Parents. It teaches both Reading and Writing in a structured, graduated + clear way, With the help of 5 Frogs and a Dog!

We have a range of Resources - paper books / Skillbuilder worksheets / Level Checks / Certificates / Support Materials / Private Reading & Writing Tuition at our "Frog Ponds" in some areas.

We are keen to provide Parents and Schools with the 'material' that works for their children, So there is a variety of ordering options to suit everyone. If you email our office or put in an order, you'll also be meeting Jodie,
our Office Manager.
