In the Garden: Band 01a/Pink A by Mitch Cronick


In the Garden: Band 01a/Pink A by Mitch Cronick

What happens when Mum is in the garden tidying up, but the children just want to play? This simple, humorous story book shows two boys creating mayhem while Mum works on, unaware. It explores the different places they find to play, from the tent, to the sandpit, through the grass, the leaves and the mud before finally ending up in the bath. * 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 story map on pages 14 and 15 shows the trail the boys make to encourage the children to retell the story in their own words.
