Synopsis

Oxford Reading Tree: Levels 13-14: Treetops True Stories: Race Against Time The Story of Apollo 13 by Paul May

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.

This book recreates the atmosphere on board and at Mission Control by using some of the real spoken words of the astronauts and ground crew. It also has diagrams that help explain the way various bits of the spacecraft fitted together, and photos. 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.
