Hip Hop Set 2 by Anita Loughrey, Stephen Rickard

Discover the origins of Hip Hop as a type of music, and the dancing, rhythms and technology that it involves. Find out about famous musical figures and steps to becoming a great rapper. Then read Malik's story about his Hip Hop band, in the short story Make Me a Star. Hip Hop is part of the Starstruck series, published by Ransom Publishing, a specialist publisher for reluctant readers and struggling readers. This series is designed for children interested in the performing arts. Each book is highly illustrated with both photos and colour illustrations. The text is carefully written to make it easier for reluctant and struggling readers. The first half of the book is non-fiction, followed by a fiction story on the same topic. Star Singer is ideal for reluctant readers aged 8 to 14 with a reading age of 6 - 7 years.
