My Life on the Wing by David Cobb

Time to fly north, my dear. All that way again! This volume is part of a collection of stories, rhymes and fact books for school libraries and for reading at home. The series moves on from stories told in simple sentences with basic grammatical structures (HOP), through freer use of language (STEP) to the level of reading reached at the end of primary school (JUMP). From these varied and individual books a child can choose one that challenges his or her reading skill. The (HOP) group of books include In My Father's Village by Michael Palmer, Striped Paint by Rosina Umelo, The Slow Chameleon and Shammy's Bride by David Cobb and The Walking Talking Flying ABC by David Cobb. In the (STEP) group of books are Choose Me! by Lynn Kramer, Nondo the Cow by Diane Rasteiro and Sika in the Snow by David Cobb. The (JUMP) group of books include Chichi and the Termites by Wendy Ijioma, The Boy who ate a Hyena by James G.D. Ngumy and Tickets for the Zed Band by Lynn Kramer.
