This title is based on the classic fairy tale. A little girl is given a magic porridge pot, but one day when her mother forgets to stop it cooking, the whole town is soon filled with porridge!

Read it yourself with Ladybird is one of Ladybird's best-selling series.

For over thirty-five years it has helped young children who are learning to read develop and improve their reading skills.

Each Read it yourself book is very carefully written to include many key, high-frequency words that are vital for learning to read, as well as a limited number of story words that are introduced and practised throughout.

Simple sentences and frequently repeated words help to build the confidence of beginner readers and the four different levels of books support children all the way from very first reading practice through to independent, fluent reading.

Each book has been carefully checked by educational consultants and can be read independently at home or used in a guided reading session at school.

Further content includes comprehension puzzles, helpful notes for parents, carers and teachers, and book band information for use in schools. The Magic Porridge Pot is a Level 1 Read it yourself title, suitable for very early readers who have had some initial reading instruction and are ready to take their first steps in reading real stories.

Each story is told very simply, using a small number of frequently repeated words.

Review by

There's something timeless about the idea that a limited resource can become infinite. A modern day allegory to do with coal and gas and overpopulation, perhaps? My six year old simply sees this as porridge, of course, and keeps asking for me to read it to her. I hope sometime in the following year she becomes able to read it herself.
