Synopsis

Muck it Up! Red A/Band 02a by Jane Clarke

Collins Big Cat Phonics is a guided reading series for ages 4-6 edited by Kay Hiatt. Top children's authors and illustrators have created fiction and non-fiction books that your children will love to read, banded to help you choose the right book for every child. Practical ideas for guided reading are included at the back of each book. The two frogs, Plip and Plop, love to play in and around the pond. When they muck up the pond and reeds, they decide to clean it up. But Duck has other ideas. Phonics Talking Books are read-along versions of the Collins Big Cat Phonics titles. Lively readings, sound effects and music all help to bring the books to life. Talking Books are designed to support reading comprehension and language acquisition for all children, and are ideal for working with less confident readers and children with English as an additional language.

About the Author

Jane Clarke

Jane Clarke on Jane Clarke:

I live in Kent with my two Labradors, Bramble and Amber. The dogs love to swim in the sea, so I burn a lot of perfumed candles to stop our house from smelling of damp dog.

Thanks to my Mum and Dad, I had a very happy childhood in the English Midlands. Dad attached a trapeze to the branch of a tree in our garden, and my friends and I spent a lot of time hanging upside down pretending to be acrobats. There were always pets – mice, hamster, and guinea pigs, cats and dogs. For a long time, I thought my dog was my brother. My bedroom was stuffed full of fossils and shells.

My ideas come from my family and pets, my friends and their families, and from school. I often lose all track of time when I’m writing. Amber and Bramble have learned to bring me their leads, to remind me to take them out for a walk.

Most of my stories and poems are funny, because I love to laugh, but sometimes I write about sad things. The saddest thing in my life is my husband’s death. Martin was a lovely man, a great husband and Dad. Andy and Rob are now at university and Martin lives on in them, in our hearts, and in our happy memories.

We love Lovereading as my 5 year old loves to read new books before anyone else has a chance, she says it makes reading exciting!

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.

Katie Lonsdale

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Angela East

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
