Synopsis

Oxford Reading Tree Traditional Tales: Level 8: Finn Maccool and the Giant's Causeway by John Dougherty, Nikki Gamble, Teresa Heapy

Finn MacCool and the Giant's Causeway is based on an Irish tale about the creation of the Giant's Causeway. Finn, an Irish giant, and Angus, a Scottish giant, think they are the strongest in the land and are willing to prove it! But Finn has some tricks up his sleeve ...This humorous story written by John Dougherty and brilliantly illustrated by Lee Cosgrove 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.
