Synopsis

Great Journeys by David Orme

Find out about the greatest journeys ever! Modern humans' first great journey took more than fifty thousand years to complete. What was it? Who discovered America? Who was first to reach the South Pole? Who was first to land on the Moon? Get the facts. Then read 'The Big Sleep' - a story about a man who takes a fifty-year journey to the stars. What does he find there when he arrives? This fantastic book features an exciting combination of both fiction and non-fiction. The non-fiction section enables readers to engage with the subject matter, using dramatic illustrations and bite-sized texts. The beautifully illustrated fiction story appears in two formats - short, simple texts for more able readers and an illustrated 'speech bubble' version of the same story, for those who are really struggling. Part of the Trailblazers series, this book is brilliant for keeping reluctant readers engaged.

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!

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

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

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.
