The Big Splash: Band 01b/Pink B by Maureen Haselhurst

A young monster is getting everything she needs to take a dip: a boat, a toy shark, armbands, goggles, flippers. Once everything is to hand she is take a bath! The vividly drawn artwork shows each step of the monster's careful preparations, offering lots of discussion points: is she going for a swim in a pool? In the sea? * Pink B level (Band 1B) books offer simple, predictable text with familiar objects and actions. * Text type - A story with predictable structure and patterned language. * An illustration on pages 14 and 14 shows the monster splashing happily in the bath, with all her toys labelled, to help children recap and discuss. * This book has been levelled for Reading Recovery.
