Synopsis

Oxford Reading Tree Traditional Tales: Level 6: Yoshi the Stonecutter by Becca Heddle, Nikki Gamble, Pam Dowson

In this Japanese story, Yoshi the stonecutter is always wishing for more. He meets a spirit who grants his wishes, until he realises the only way he can be happy is to stop wishing for more. This enchanting story written by Becca Heddle and charmingly illustrated by Meg Hunt will capture your child's imagination! It has been sensitively rewritten to enable your child to read it 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.
