Synopsis

Seal Skull Band 04 Blue/Band 16 Sapphire by Anne Curtis

A boy takes home a seal skull that he finds at the beach. It has dark, empty eyes that stare back at him. Now a storm is brewing and his room is filled with shadows - will he be able to calm the storm? This mysterious story by Anne Curtis is evocatively illustrated by Chris Corner. * Collins Big Cat Progress builds confidence, helping struggling pupils not only to read, but to love reading * Dual-banded books provide age-appropriate interest level material matched with a lower reading ability level * Every book is levelled by reading expert Cliff Moon to ensure precise, systematic, measurable progression to help close the ability gap * The books use a range of reading strategies: phonic, graphic, syntactic and contextual to build confident, accurate, fluent readers * Designed to build speaking and listening skills, as well as reading skills, the books are highly visual and include incredible illustrations and photographs * Every book has a Key Stage 2 look-and-feel to engage older pupils and avoid stigmatisation * Topics are relevant for children in years 3-6 and connected to the curriculum and framework objectives for these years to support inclusion * Progress titles contain a Reader Response page to encourage the pupil to respond to and recall what they have read. This offers an ideal opportunity to check comprehension * Ideas for Reading, written by primary literacy expert Gill Howell are included in the back of every book to help you support the reading needs of each child * This book has been quizzed for Accelerated Reader.

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
