Synopsis

How Does it Work Band 09/Gold by Gill Matthews, Sylvia Karavis

How does a yo-yo climb back up its string? Why does a boomerang come back to you? And how does a kaleidoscope work? These and other mind-bending questions are answered in this explanation text about how toys work. * Gold/Band 9 fiction books offer developing readers literary language and stories with distinctive characters. * Text type - An explanation text. * A table on pages 20 and 21 summarises what makes each toy featured in the book work, for example, magnets, friction or gravity. The book includes a glossary and an index on pages 22 and 23. Both provide lots of opportunities to check comprehension and stimulate work outside the reading session. *Curriculum links - Art and design: Investigate materials; Science: Forces and movement.

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.

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

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.
