Synopsis

The Universe by Maureen O'Keefe

The Space set is one of three new additions to this popular non-fiction series. It covers recent developments in space exploration and takes a special look at the future of Mars. Large, exciting photographs and diagrams draw readers into the text and get them thinking about the topic. The text is tiered to provide for different reading abilities. The set of books covers all the non-fiction 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, and captions. Suitable for reading ages 9-11.
