Synopsis

Jungle School Green Banana by Elizabeth Laird, Roz Davison

Three monkey stories with a real sense of fun by Elizabeth Laird and Roz Davison for Egmont's green banana series. It's Jani's first day at school and she's nervous. Will the other monkeys be friendly? Will they all stare at her? Jani is in a wheelchair, and this makes her different. But, thanks to her sense of cheekiness, she makes friends and has a very nice first day at school indeed. Green bananas are divided into short, simple stories to develop reading techniques over a number of sessions. They are suitable for NC Level 1 readers. Green Bananas are carefully designed with education in mind, supporting children's understanding of how to read longer books. Green bananas only use one clause in each sentence and rely on dialogue and speech bubbles to encourage reading aloud.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
