Synopsis

The Big, Bad City Band 07/Turquoise by Shoo Rayner

Little Red Hen is looking for Granny's house in the big, bad city. Should she trust the smiley stranger who wants to help her? * Turquoise/ Band 7 books offer literary language and extended descriptions, with longer sentences and a wide range of unfamiliar terms. * Text type - A traditional tale * The story is followed on pages 22 and 23 by a map of Mr Fox's whole route, which is a great way to recap and discuss the story with children and gives an opportunity to extend into further work outside the reading session. * Curriculum links: geography: `Pupils should be taught to use simple compass directions (North, South, East and West) and locational and directional language [for example, near and far; left and right], to describe the location of features and routes on a map'.

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!

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.

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

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