Oxford Reading Tree Traditional Tales: Level 1: The Mouse and the Elephant by Narinda Dhami, Nikki Gamble, Teresa Heapy

The Mouse and the Elephant is an Indian fable based on a Panchatantra story about helping others and underestimating others based on appearances. An elephant helps a mouse, little knowing his tiny friend will one day be able to return the favour by coming to his rescue ...This charming story written by Narinder Dhami and illustrated by Amy Schmiler will capture your child's imagination! It has been sensitively created to enable your child to engage with the plot and characters with confidence, whilst capturing the magic of the original tale. There are useful tips for parents and an engaging story map inside the book to help you and your child retell the story together. The Oxford Reading Tree Traditional Tales series includes 40 of the best known stories from all over the world, which have been passed down for generations. They are a perfect introduction to different cultures, traditions and morals. All the stories are carefully levelled to Oxford Reading Tree levels and matched to the phonic progression in Letters and Sounds enabling your children to read the stories independently. Books contain inside cover notes to support children in their reading. Help with childrens reading development is also available at www.oxfordowl.co.uk.
