Big Books, comprising a range of stories and texts that children can relate to. The Big Books are graded according to difficulty, starting with one-word-per-page books and moving to one-sentence-per-page books. The Big Books can be used to facilitate emergent reading by giving learners the opportunity to hold books the right way up, to turn pages correctly when 'reading' and to develop correct eye movement, such as following lines of text from left to right. The learners also develop as readers through shared reading when they 'read' the Big Books as a class with the teacher.
