Bronze Age Adventures: Metal Man by Shoo Rayner


Bronze Age Adventures: Metal Man by Shoo Rayner

This brilliant new mini series introduces us to family life in the bronze age through action and adventure, written and illustrated by the multi-talented Shoo Rayner. You can top up your Bronze Age facts at the back of the book too! In this story, Dug is bored, but then he watches Mini creating rock babies and gets an idea - why not create his very own metal man! The first ingredient is wax from honeycomb - and that means collecting some from a nest of angry bees...! Race Ahead with Reading is the perfect introduction to reading chapters with brand new page turning reads in five short bite size chapters, to encourage children to take the driving seat with their reading. Each book is book banded at level 9 or 10, perfect for 6-8 year old independent readers.

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

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 is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
