Published:7 Sep 2006
These children’s classics have been sensitively adapted to enrich your junior pupils’ reading. They are part of a structured reading programme for juniors from Oxford Reading Tree, Levels 9-16. They have masses of boy and girl appeal and will introduce your readers to significant authors from the past – a key part of the Literacy Strategy.
Each book features two author biographies – one for the original author and one for the TreeTops author. In addition each book includes comprehension questions and teaching notes to help draw out and practice difficult comprehension strategies such as inference, empathy and deduction. There are also notes to help with historical and social context and any challenging vocabulary, ensuring the books are easily accessible.
