Close Reading 11-14 with Answers by Mary M. Firth, Andrew G. Ralston

Close Reading 11-14 provides a wide selection of of extracts from novels old and (especially) new, with accompanying interpretation/ comprehension-type questions. In addition, the 'Taking A Closer Look' section in each chapter focuses on a specific language feature from the passage and provides further explanations and practice exercises on that aspect of language. The book has specific links with Knowledge About Language (by the same authors) but can also be used independently of that title, either as a stand-alone classroom textbook or a resource for individual pupils needing interpretation practice.

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.

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

It’s really exciting to read and review new books, thrilling to see my reviews online and I love finding the final published copies on sale.

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.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
