The Farmer's Lunch: Band 01a/Pink a by Paul Shipton, John Gordon


The Farmer's Lunch: Band 01a/Pink a by Paul Shipton, John Gordon

It's lunchtime and the farmer's hungry, but his lunch box is empty! He turns to all the animals on his farm for help, the sheep, cows, horses and geese, but they are all being very secretive. Are they hiding his lunch, or a much bigger and better surprise? The delightful illustrations develop the text, providing lots of points for discussion. * Pink A/Band 1A books offer emergent readers very simple text supported by illustrations. * Text type: A story with predictable structure and patterned language. * A map of the farm showing all the animals on pages 14-15 helps children recap the main events of the story, and provides a wealth of speaking and listening opportunities. * Curriculum links: Personal, Social and Emotional Development
