As children become more confident, independent readers this collection showcases a range of high quality picture books and longer reads which support their progress and engagement.

The Power of Pictures provides great classroom activities. We are thrilled with the development of our children’s writing.

The project has had a huge impact in the EYFS through use of the books and teaching sequences. It has been instrumental in giving more confidence and inspiration to our teachers.
