Collins Big Cat Arabic Readers In the Dark: Level 6 by Claire Llewellyn

Collins Arabic Big Cat is a guided reading series for ages 3 to 11. The series is structured with reference to the learning progression of Arabic at nursery and primary schools researched especially for Collins. This carefully graded approach allows children to build up their reading knowledge of Arabic step by step. Level 6 books provide an advance on level 5. Sentences are still highly repetitive but slightly longer, with simple story development supported by illustrations. Double spacing is used between words to ensure children see where each new word in a sentence begins and ends. Although the focus at level 6 remains on reading the core words, the concept of reading hamzat al-wasl and sun letters correctly is introduced in non-verbal sentences of up to 4-5 words. This superb text uses atmospheric illustrations to show what happens in the neighbourhood when it is dark. Who can be found in the city streets when children are tucked up in bed? Which animals prowl in the wood by the light of the moon? Pages 14 and 15 repeat the scenes explored throughout the book, allowing children the chance to recap on the narrative, and answer the question 'Where is it dark?'
