What is Rhino Readers?
Take your children from decoding to fluency with our Rhino Readers books. Written by teachers to perfectly complement your children’s phonics journey. This exciting collection will grow to create the perfect reading scheme, helping you to create confident, enthusiastic and independent readers.
The Rhino Readers collection will grow to feature fiction and non-fiction titles across phonics levels (phases) 1 to 6. The books are fully decodable and span a range of topics, themes and genres.
How can I access the books?
With a Twinkl Ultimate subscription, you’ll have access to the Rhino Readers eBook collection on the Twinkl site. Choose the phonics level you need and start sharing the ebooks with your children via the Rhino Readers app or our planner tool.
Rhino Readers App
All books are available on our Rhino Readers app; a digital library allowing you to take Rhino Readers books with you wherever you go. The app is available to download from the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store.
With an Ultimate membership or in-app purchase, you can set up a profile for each child which will allow them to select the level of phonics they are at and access the books. This includes a Phonics Sound Book which goes over the sounds children will come across in the level.
Take a look at this video to see the benefits of the app:

Can Rhino Readers be used with Twinkl Phonics?
Rhino Readers books perfectly complement Twinkl Phonics, our own systematic, synthetic phonics programme for children from nursery to year 2. More info on the Twinkl Phonics Scheme can be found here.
As Twinkl Phonics follows the same progression sequence as Letters and Sounds, it also means that Rhino Readers books are perfectly aligned to the majority of phonics programmes currently used in schools.
Do our levels correspond with the Book Band colours?
The colour shown on the Rhino Readers book spine corresponds to Twinkl Phonics levels. In addition, all Rhino Readers books ensure children and teachers see the focus sounds and tricky words before reading, making it easy to see exactly what’s covered in the book. Colour banding systems used by other publishers can vary.
