Project X Origins: Red Book Band, Oxford Level 2: Pets: Paco's Pet by Damian Harvey

Project X Origins is a ground-breaking guided reading programme for the whole school. Action-packed stories, fascinating non-fiction and comprehensive guided reading support meet the needs of children at every stage of their reading development. Paco is looking at all the animals in the zoo in Paco's Pet and wonders whether his Mum will let him take one home as a pet. Each book contains inside cover notes that highlight challenge words, prompt questions and a range of follow-up activities to support children in their reading.
