Hatch a love for reading with Eggy Words 250!

Eggy Words 250 is all about helping your child (age 3+) to learn sight words, which are essential for learning to read fluently.

What are sight words we hear you ask? They are the words that readers should know ‘at sight’, words like he, the, was and where. And they are so important because they make up a huge proportion of the books and other texts we read.

Knowing these sight words means that your child can focus on the best parts of being able to read – understanding and enjoying the story!
