Synopsis

Oxford Reading Tree: Levels 13-14: Treetops True Stories: Kelly the Rescue Dog by Tessa Krailing

TreeTops True Stories are exciting, motivating non-fiction books which will broaden your pupils' reading experience. They are part of a structured reading programme for juniors. A true recounting of the extraordinary life of Kelly, who is a working dog trained to find survivors in disaster areas, and her owner Simon. Centred on the events of the Turkish earthquake in August 1999, it uses fictional characters (except for Simon and Kelly of course!) to tell a powerful tale of the international effort that goes into rescuing people who are caught up in natural disasters. Supported by real photographs of Simon and Kelly, and information on the training and handling of experienced rescue dogs like Kelly, this title explores the theme of the relationship between humans and animals, and the terrific sense of achievement in the saving of ordinary lives. Books contain inside cover notes to support children in their reading. Help with childrens reading development also available at www.oxfordowl.co.uk. This book is also available as part of a mixed pack of 6 different books or a class pack of 36 books of the same Oxford Reading Tree level.

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

Emily Horncastle – age 11

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Angela East

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

Judi Davies – Aberdare Girls Sch

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

Georgie Rowe – age 16

This company is amazing; not only is it is a great opportunity to get books and review them but everyone is so friendly and supportive!

Jemma Rubens, age 10

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Katie Lonsdale

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

Love “Lovereading4kids” as my son gets to hear about & read new books before his mates which keeps him interested in reading=a very happy Mum
