This title forms part of the Little Library programme, which consists of a Literacy Kit, Numeracy Kit and Life Skills Kit.

Many of the well-loved stories, posters and activities have been kept and exciting new stories have been added. The posters, activities and the Teacher's Guide have all been revised to provide fresh, new ideas to try out in the classroom. The terrible Graakwa is a title in the Little Library Literacy Kit. Summary: Simphiwe is a magical child. He works together with the other animals to resuce the Bird of Peace from a monster called the Terrible Graakwa. Concepts covered: characters, plurals, direct speech, opposites, wild animals, working together, bravery and problem solving.

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!

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

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.
