The Spaceship Saga and Other Stories Read a Play - Book 1 by Helen Lawson

Read a Play together! Will Yarg the alien take Sassie and Sam on an eight-year trip to outer space? Does an Egyptian mummy really come to life in a dusty old museum? Can Connie and her dog outwit the school bully? Just how are the Croaktown Cockroaches so good at football and is it really possible for children to travel back in time to wartime Britain? There's only one way to find out... Read a Play stories help bring reading to life as you take on different characters throughout the book. Have fun with accents and funny voices at the same time as engaging young readers. This is a truly interactive selection of satisfying stories you can enjoy together with your children.


Struggling young readers can feel overwhelmed by a whole page of text. Read/Play stories make it easier for children to join in and remain engaged throughout. It s also a thoroughly entertaining way to read aloud together and especially beneficial to readers who lack confidence, helping them enjoy the whole reading experience and believe in themselves as successful readers. --Rachel Sawbridge, CPsychol AFBPsS

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