Synopsis

Collins Big Cat Arabic Readers I Want a Companion: Level 10 by Kaye Umansky

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 10 books include characters that express emotions and stories with more events. Non-fiction titles introduce terms that might be new to many children. Level 10 books continue to use single spacing and more high-frequency words appear without vowel markings to help the students get used to the traditional norms of printed Arabic. 'I want a pet! I want a pet! I hope I like the pet I get!' But when a boy goes to the Strange Pet Shop to find a companion, there's no knowing what he'll find there. This rollicking rhyming story is accompanied by wonderfully wacky illustrations of the most bizarre pets you could ever hope to meet! At the end of the story is a poster advertising the Strange Pet Shop, which is ideal of further discussion and recapping of the book in children's own words.
