Synopsis

Tinga Tinga Tales: Why Giraffe Has a Long Neck - Read it Yourself with Ladybird Level 1 by

This is a Tinga Tinga tale inspired by traditional stories from Africa. Once upon a time, Giraffe had a short neck. But then one day she sticks her head in a tree to get some honey - and can't get out again! Read it yourself with Ladybird is one of Ladybird's best-selling series. For over thirty-five years it has helped young children who are learning to read develop and improve their reading skills. Each Read it yourself book is very carefully written to include many key, high-frequency words that are vital for learning to read, as well as a limited number of story words that are introduced and practised throughout. Simple sentences and frequently repeated words help to build the confidence of beginner readers and the four different levels of books support children all the way from very first reading practice through to independent, fluent reading. Each book has been carefully checked by educational consultants and can be read independently at home or used in a guided reading session at school. Further content includes comprehension puzzles, helpful notes for parents, carers and teachers, and book band information for use in schools. Tinga Tinga Tales: Why Giraffe Has a Long Neck is a Level 1 Read it yourself title, suitable for very early readers who have had some initial reading instruction and are ready to take their first steps in reading real stories. Each story is told very simply, using a small number of frequently repeated words.
