Best Mates Set 2 by Helen Orme, David Orme


Best Mates Set 2 by Helen Orme, David Orme

Gary has a problem. His best mate Jason lives far away and doesn't go to the same school. Rick and Pete, who do, land Gary in big trouble. How can Gary deal with these bullies? Best Mates 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+.

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
