In the Dark: Band 02A/Red A by Claire Llewellyn

'It is dark in the park. It is dark in the street.' This superb patterned non-fiction text uses atmospheric illustrations to show what happens in the neighbourhood when it is dark. Who can be found in the city streets when children are tucked up in bed? Which animals prowl in the wood by the light of the moon? *Red A/ Band 2A books offer predictable text with familiar objects and actions, combined with simple story development. * Text type - Non-fiction recount. * Pages 14 and 15 repeat the scenes explored throughout the book, allowing children the chance to recap on the narrative, and answer the question 'Where is it dark?' * This book has been levelled for Reading Recovery
