Synopsis

Oh Dear Me, I'm Late for Tea! Band 00/Lilac by Alison Hawes

This picture story follows Granny's race against the clock. It's two o'clock and Granny has just one hour to reach her destination. As the minutes tick by, the story shows Granny's increasingly imaginative modes of transport, from skateboard to jet pack, before revealing why she is in such a hurry - it's her grandchild's birthday tea. * Lilac/Band 0 - wordless books that tell stories or give information through pictures and are designed to develop understanding about how stories and information books work. * Text type - Fiction * The Reader Response page shows Granny's pictorial recount of the different transport she used, providing opportunities for speaking and listening. * This story is paired with a non-fiction book on the same theme: My Party by Maoliosa Kelly. * This book has been levelled for Reading Recovery

Reviews

Though structured with the progression and security of a reading scheme, the Big Cat readers are books that stand as good titles in their own right. Collins

-up of authors is impressive, with contributions from established writers such as Margaret Mahy and Jeremy Strong... Subject matter is well matched to the interests and curriculum of primary children... These books have child appeal within a well-structured scheme, complete with banding and notes for guided reading. From TES Magazine, Feb 16 2007 I was very pleased with the books I evaluated and the children certainly enjoyed them as well. I showed them to the other teachers and they agreed they were far more interesting and of better quality than the traditional guided reading texts we currently use. From Primary Choice, April 2007 A really refreshing series, offering an excellent variety of subject matter and constructive ideas for guided reading. Julia Lee-Jones, Llancarfon Primary School The Collins Big Cat series is a breath of fresh air in the reading world. The books are imaginative and enticing. The stories are relevant, well paced and easy to understand. There is a variety of genre and style and the children know that when it comes to guided reading time, that the stories will be lively, exciting and will draw them in. Roberta Bailie, Omagh County Primary School Having the notes at the back of the book is brilliant, no cards to lose or notes to forget to collect, it's all there ready! Rachael Margeson, St Mary's COE Nursery and Infant School I was delighted by all of the books. I liked the way all covers were different so that children felt they were reading real books and not plodding through a scheme. The content was brilliant for not only guided reading sessions but also as early non-fiction finding out sessions. BRILLIANT! Leominster Infants School, Herefordshire
