I Can't Help it Set 1 by Helen Orme, David Orme


I Can't Help it Set 1 by Helen Orme, David Orme

Amy's Dad smoked at home. Amy hated it, but she just had to put up with it. Then something really bad happened, and her Dad knew he would have to stop. But it wasn't going to be easy. I Can't Help It is part of the Streetwise reading series. 'Streetwise' covers key PSHE (personal, social and health education) topics with each book featuring a short story highlighting a single topic, accompanied by discussion points and writing ideas in the back of each book. Each story is short enough to enable a topic to be covered in a single 20 minute lesson. Streetwise is published by Ransom Publishing, a specialist publisher for reluctant and struggling readers. It is ideal for readers aged 11+ with a reading ages of 10+.
