A fun, cultural and informative series of readers.

Divided into six levels for children from six to twelve years old.

  • Macmillan Children’s Readers reinforce the basic structures and vocabulary found in most Primary courses and make learning English a fun and informative experience.
  • The blend of ‘Fact Files’ and topical fiction stories in levels three to six motivates the older children and appeals to boys and girls equally.
  • A picture dictionary or wordlist and corresponding activity pages at the back of each reader provide a clear guide for learning key vocabulary.


The accompanying audio on our website give children a chance to listen to the stories while they read them.
