The Lovereading4Kids comment
First Reading: Level Three. A traditional tale from South America re told for a young audience. Titles in this level encourage the reader to develop reading stamina, increasing to 48 pages. This will include the main story (up to 450 words) as well as character sheets or maps. The story includes a strong element of reprise or repetition, with the familiarity of repeated language chunks helping the reader to gain in confidence. Subjects include classic folktales from around the world as well as original fiction, all with quirky and humorous illustrations. Will be enjoyed with equal enthusiasm if read alone or together with a parent.
