Collins Big Cat Arabic Readers Cunning and Clever: Level 5 by Simon Puttock

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 5 books are for children who are ready to read stories with more challenging word patterns or non-verbal sentences with 2 or 3 words, and with total support through illustrations and extensive use of repetition. Double spacing is used between words to ensure children see where each new word in a sentence begins and ends to ensure the focus remains on reading core words. The fox invites his friend the stork to dinner, but serves the stork his meal on a flat plate. Find out how the fox and the stork play tricks on one another at dinnertime. This retelling of a traditional tale is retold by award-winning author Simon Puttock. Children can recap the tricks that the fox and stork played on one another on pages 14-15.
