The set of books covers all the nonfiction text types - information report, explanation, recount, instructions, discussion and persuasion. Other writing features such as compare and contrast, problem and solution, and cause and effect are included to show pupils how they can improve their non-fiction writing by incorporating these structures into their own work. Also inside are labelled illustrations, experiments, tables, maps, timelines and captions. Suitable for reading ages 8-10.
